Golden Bronze Fighting Fish Leather Mask by merimask Golden Bronze Fighting Fish Leather Mask by merimask
This is, I think, one of my most beautiful masks and a design I'm quite proud of. Full of motion, color and energy. Inspired by my beautiful crown tail betta (who has since joined the Choir Invisible...he's an ex-betta), this is an original piece of wearable art depicting two fighting fish swirling in battle.

This mask is intricately carved and tooled, and then hand-shaped from one piece of 8oz leather. It is painted with colorfast Liquitex acrylics in metallic bronze, copper, and various shades of gold, with the carving accented by a rich brown antiquing stain.

Available (until it is gone!) only at my online shop...just follow this link: [link]

I want it so much, it's a shame that it's $180 lol :iconcryforeverplz:
especially as it's leather, and leather masks are so much better than plastic ones
You earn't a :+fav: and a watch! ^^

This would also make a gorgeous Pisces mask, with the two fish swimming in opposition like that. Beautifully done!
