Blue Jeweled Cat Mask by merimask Blue Jeweled Cat Mask by merimask
Here's a new version of my Persian Cat mask (seen elsewhere in this gallery, I know. A sort of marriage between my Bast mask and my Persian mask, which was based on the patterns of a Persian rug I used to own).

This custom cat was a special order from my Etsy shop. [link]

It needed to be blue, with silver and cool color tones instead of gold, so I mixed a metallic blue and did accents in silver, pewter, black and white. I also added some ice-blue Swarovski crystals for extra sparkle.

Just one question: How did you get the embossed pattern? Did you have to do it yourself? :)

This is utterly lovely! I was thinking of making a mask myself one day and was wondering if I could ask you a couple of questions.

How much does the leather normally cost and what do you use to carve out the design before you paint it?

Despite returning to dA after AGES, I knew this was one of yours because of your distinct style and the way you display your masks on that particular tree :D

Pretty pretty shade of blue~

A very nice mask, if it wasn't for the minor crinkles above the nose I probably would have easily believed it was actually made of metal. Great work!

You make the most gorgeous masks I've ever seen. I especially like your Persian and Venetian masks.
Did you glue in the crystals or are they just pressed in after the initial warming or is there some super special secret to putting them on?

Thank you. :-)

The crystals are pretty small, so I just use a spot of strong jeweler's epoxy to glue them on. No problems at all so far, as far as durability goes.
