Green Gold Medusa Mask by merimask Green Gold Medusa Mask by merimask
I just finished this girl last night; another one of my Medusa masks.

It was a custom order from my Etsy shop; a black Medusa with snakes that shaded from blue green through pine green to gold, in metallic tones. Tricky, 'cause adding the gold to the pine green makes it less and less blue, but I think I got it right. :-) The eyes of the tiny snakes are turquoise beads.

This mask is made from one piece of 8oz leather, hand carved & tooled, and hand shaped with no mold or form. Painted with Liquitex acrylics.

Custom pieces like this can be requested only at my online shop: [link]

Maybe because I live where the Medusa legends begun, I love this one very much... Brilliant design and details, and the colors are perfect. The eyes looks even hypnotic! Marvellous.

The snakes are absolutely adorable!

Would you consider doing a commission on a keychain of just one of the snakes? ^^; They're really fantastically cute!

I continue to love the way you do the eyes on the snakes, on your Medusa masks. Really goes the extra mile in creating another convincing mask.

Oh my Jeff, I adore it. Especially the part around the eyes, for some reason. And the blue that goes with the snakes' blue eyes. I love this colour combination the most out of the ones you've made in this design. Then again, I'm such a sucker for green and blue.
