So, I was commissioned to make a swan mask yesterday, and I liked the idea SO MUCH that I went ahead and stayed up all night to make it. I'd done a full swan mask (with the entire figure of the swan on the face...see my last entry) but this had to be a swan head...with a beak.
So, it's stylized with an understated beak, and embellished with ermine heraldic designs (since this is for a medieval masquerade), and I think it turned out pretty neat!
As ever, hand carved, hand shaped leather, painted with Liquitex acrylics.
