Great Purple Dragon Mask by merimask Great Purple Dragon Mask by merimask
Here is something new and spectacular...a limited edition mask: "Great Purple Dragon".

Based on Asian dragon motifs, I made this my own creation by using a unique technique of leather sculpting that I have pioneered.

The mask is carved out of several pieces of 8oz leather, three times the thickness of most Venetian-style leather masks. This allows me to carve the leather deeply, but requires me to shape the entire sculpture by hand with no use of molds or armatures.

It is first dyed all black, then painted with colorfast acrylics by hand in black and violet. Then, I dry-brushed special violet interference acrylic medium over the mane and scales. On the black mane, it creates a shimmering purple which shifts from black to purple depending on the angle. On the pale violet scales it adds a shimmer of deeper violet that intensifies or decreases in different light and at different angles.

Needless to say; this mask is going to be LOADS of fun to wear. As you move, the color will shimmer like the wings of a raven. It's pretty intense.

This is a custom order mask which you can request here: [link] It's made to order entirely by hand, so there will be small variations each time.
