Fighting Bettas 2 by merimask Fighting Bettas 2 by merimask
The second version of my "Fighting Bettas" mask. I thought I'd try it in more feminine colors. Also, I used to have a violet & white male betta & he was just so stunning. I'm immortalizing pets here, you see...

Like all my work, this is created from one piece of leather, hand carved and shaped with no molds or forms. Painted with Liquitex acrylics.

My masks (including this one) are available for purchase at my online Etsy site: [link]

These masks are so beautiful. I want to get my friend one for her birthday. She has 8 bettas.

Wow! I love how the eye-holes blend into the design; I almost didn't realize it was a mask at first. Beautiful!
