Dragon Skull Leather Mask 1 by merimask Dragon Skull Leather Mask 1 by merimask
Something new and scary; a dragon skull mask!

I've been working on this one for a while. The design is roughly based on an antelope skull. I added bone spurs to the sides of the face and extra horns. And fangs. And inlaid a green cat's eye stone in the forehead, just to make it look properly magical (although unfortunately...dead).

Like all my masks, this is hand carved and hand shaped without molds or forms, from one piece of 8oz leather. It's been painted with colorfast Liquitex acrylics. Signed dated AND numbered original; this is "Dragon Skull #1".

Available right now in my Etsy shop: [link]

Yes, it's really great! This thing wants to buy ^ ^ Can I ask what material you make these masks? I just also want to make this one for a costume ... But if you do not want me to reveal your secrets, then I'll understand)

You know, people have been hating on this one's green stone, but looking at this and the other one, I rather like how the green pops in this one. It's as if it's alive on the inside with some kind of inner fire or magic that keeps the dragon animated. I can see this being really cool with some kind of opal or labradorite (or other stone with luminescence). I love em both, but this one makes my imagination run away even more because of that pearlescence.

Great design! Very different, but I like it a lot.
Great job with the coloring. It looks old and dirty and perfectly like bone! I love the horns and the stone.
