Golden Wolf 2 by merimask Golden Wolf 2 by merimask
The second of my "Golden Wolf" mask experiments...

I decided to do a more stylized "Asian" flame motif on this one. I think I went...a little overboard on the flames! Not really sure if this is a viable pattern to offer repeatedly in my shop because it took SO long to carve.

Still, I like the results.

This mask is available (probably for a limited time...my last golden wolf lasted about three hours) at my online Etsy shop: [link]

Love the gold flames and the black accents around his eyes.

Thanks! The black is a bit stark...I might try a medium brown next time just for fun...

the designs here really added to the contrast between the fur and designs. It looks like alot of work though. ive got a mask in mind that im going to try out. just trying to find some leather. where do you get yours from?

Thanks!

I only use leather from the Wickett & Craig tannery in Curwensville PA...their stuff is the best leather by far of any I've tried.

You can reach them at 1-800-TANNERY. They'll ship right to your door. Try some bellies first if you don't feel like committing to a whole hide right away. 7 ounce is a good weight to start.
