Custom Frost Dragon 2011 by merimask Custom Frost Dragon 2011 by merimask
I just finished this custom Frost Dragon for a very patient client in the UK...I hope he loves the mask. :-) It's one of my most elaborate designs, with separate pieces for the eyebrows and whiskers, and tons of carved details. A real labor of love.

As ever, this is made of hand carved hand sculpted 8 ounce vegetable-tanned tooling leather. Painted with Liquitex acrylics.

Custom orders like this mask can be requested only at my online shop: [link]

Wow! This mask is astounding! You put so much care and detail into your work and it definitely shows. Out of curiousity, what do you use to glue two pieces of leather together (like the pieces above the nostrils)?

love this mask by the way, one of my favs, how do you do the eyebrows and mustache, or er the things above his nostrils? do you glue strips of leather on and then curl it?

Wow, you're work never ceases to inspire awe. I love the carving details, they're so meticulous and realistic. I especially love the curls, though.

Beautiful work, as always!

I think this design is one of my favorites that you do. The elaborate carving and the additional elements (whiskers, brows) really give it a unique character, Meri. Lovely! Thank you for sharing!

Well, I can't see how he won't fall in love with it - it's an excellent mask, and the colours are lovely. It really looks cold, you know? :D
