Desert Persian Cat Mask by merimask Desert Persian Cat Mask by merimask
I am super happy with this new color version of my Persian Cat mask.

It's a custom mask in pale brown, gold, copper and dark brown/bronze. With gold Swarovski crystals. I'm calling it a "desert Persian cat" because it looks all sandy desert-colored to me. It's part of a special order for a pair of masks for an "Owl And Pussycat"-themed masquerade party. I'm working on a barn owl to match this cat. They'll be the most awesome pair at the party.

Like all my masks, this one is made of 8oz leather. Hand carved & hand shaped with no stamps or forms, and painted with Liquitex acrylics.

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

Out of all your masks, this one definitely caught my eye. It's very elegant and supremely beautiful. You should come down to New Orleans one weekend and set up a booth at the french market right before Mardi Gras. You'd do very well, I'm sure.
I do have a question for you though, if you don't mind. Is your line work cut or indention done with a stylus?

Thanks...I was very happy with this one too. :-)

I use a 1/4 angle ceramic swivel knife...it's a tooling knife you can buy at any leather craft store (Tandy). I also carve very deeply, plus I bevel with a smooth-head tool all along the edge of the cut, to add a deeper 3-d effect. Most people don't do that...

Thanks for the info!
Many of my tools are from Tandy as well, but from a generation ago (I inherited dad's leather box) and I am just starting out in this beautiful art form. I appreciate the insight from such a talented artist as yourself! :)
