Ginkgo Leaf Mask by merimask Ginkgo Leaf Mask by merimask
Here's a very simple design...inspired by a recent trip to Japan; my Ginkgo Leaf Mask.

Like everything I make, this is hand-carved and hand-shaped from leather. I used a new technique of dry-brushing bright gold acrylic paint over a brown base, which gave the mask a lovely burnished gold look.

Many of these pieces are available for sale on my Etsy site; [link]

I was lucky enough to purchase this mask from Etsy and I am in love with it! It will be a fabulous part of my costuming for Mardi Gras and Faerie festivals.
