Blue Silver Dragon Mask by merimask Blue Silver Dragon Mask by merimask
I did this custom order dragon over the weekend; another dragon design I hadn't made in too long. I call these "filigree" dragons because the swirled embellishments remind me of enlarged filigree designs. At least, that was what I was going for when I designed them.

This one is inlaid with a single blue cats eye cabochon. The dragon's magical "third eye".

Like all my masks, this is hand carved and tooled from one piece of 8oz leather, shaped with no molds or forms, and painted with Liquiyex acrylics. You can order a mask like this one, only from my online shop: [link]

Lovely!! And know what? If you shrink it and make it into a small necklace pendant and attach it on a chain, it would be awesome! Many would like it!

The colours look beautiful, and I like how the silver forms a little heart on the nose x3

Beautiful! It reminds me slightly of the Blue Sapphire Dragon from a TV show, Xiaolin Showdown! XD

I love the stone. It looks really really cool. It looks like it should be a water dragon. :)

Did you make an Etsy account? It's easy enough...all you need is an e-mail address and a screen name.

Don't try to request a custom item...just click "contact" and use that.

BTW I just checked and the site is down for some reason so maybe that's the problem.

Sorry...I only do those via e-mail from Etsy because anything I put in a public place (like on a DA entry) gets confusing over time. Prices change and a 2 year old entry can befuddle someone who doesn't look at the date.

Another really nice colour-combo. :D The contrast works out really well, and I really like the swirls in the filigree-designs.

Thank you. :-) I usually do my metallic blue reductions with silver and pthalo blue (the green shade)...this time I did it with silver and pthalo blue (the red shade) and it's less tropical, more icy.
