Black and White Persian Cat Mask by merimask Black and White Persian Cat Mask by merimask
This is a custom order from my Etsy shop; a Persian Cat in black and white with silver details. I call these "Persian" because the designs are inspired by an old Persian rug I own.

This is the first Persian Cat I've ever done in b & w. I have to say it is the most time-consuming color combination I do; it takes SO long to paint because not only does white need extra coats, but the lines have to be exactly perfect. Mistakes are hard to cover up.

Anyway, it makes a stunning mask. :) The b&w ones always seem almost formal and glamourous to me. I added some clear Swarovski crystals to it, for added sparkle.

As ever, this is hand carved, hand shaped 8 oz veg-tanned tooling leather. Painted with Liquitex acrylics.

Custom masks like this one can be requested only at my online Etsy shop, here: [link]

It's incredible to see your design eye at work- the color combinations and there general style all come together seamlessly. Might I add, I thought to myself that it was quite the Persian design... and it was! You did that smahsingly!

It's gorgeous! The black and white indeed makes it look a bit more formal and glamerous. And the silver of course adds to that feeling.

That is a lovely combination, alright - but I can imagine it took a long time to paint; white is really tricky.

... I kind of want to see this in some artsy b&w movie with a jazzy soundtrack.
