Blue Flame Demon Mask by merimask Blue Flame Demon Mask by merimask
This was a fun, interesting commission: a mostly black mask with blue and white flames, designed to look almost like horns. It's all one piece of leather, in spite of the fact that the flames look like separate pieces; I just carved and painted very carefully and precisely.

The center needed a little something, so we added a section of silvery Venetian-style spirals. In construction it's very like my Half-Dragon masks. I think it would be stunning with red/gold flames on black, with gold swirls...might have to try that soon. :)

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

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

This is gorgeous and not a little intimidating! :D The Venetian swirls help bring it together - they might work if you did them in blue, too, to pull a bit of the flame-colour onto the face of the mask - and I would love to see it in red/gold.

You know, it's odd to say this because you're the most amazing mask-maker i've seen...but this last batch of masks looks like you went another step up. This is the stuff of dreams.

The flames are ... I feel I'm over-using the word "awesome" when I'm commenting on your pieces, but I don't have another word for it. I mean it every time, though. I agree, you should make one with red, yellow and gold flames! This is like ice flames.

Thanks! :) It was sort of based on an anime or manga character (don't ask me who...it was just a jpg the customer gave me) and I think it's for cosplay. It'll be the artsiest cosplay mask at the con I bet. :)

When I first saw it, I was like that reminds me of Rin from the manga Ao no Exorcist. He's a character that has blue flames as a pair of horns- very cool character.

And I totally agree, whoever wears that mask is definitely going to be the envy of many. Beautiful mask as usual :D
