Green Medusa Mask 2013 by merimask Green Medusa Mask 2013 by merimask
One of my most-requested, least-offered designs (because it is so time-consuming to make). This is my original signature "Medusa", featuring single-piece construction and twelve individually sculpted snakes with beaded eyes.

It is made from one piece of 8oz leather, hand carved and shaped without molds or forms, then painted with colorfast acrylics in black, metallic teal green in a gold gradient, and antiqued gold.

The twelve snakes have wire-wrapped Czech amber glass beads secured in each head, and each is finished with a soft suede gusset chin. Designed to be secure through every kind of wearing, whether it is on special occasions or in daily theatrical performances.

I think I've only made about twenty of these...very rare that I have the time for one (nice to know I can still make them!). Available at my online Etsy shop, here ---> [link]

Ah! Why does this remind me of Doctor Who? Like this mask possesses the Weeping Angels, or like this is the mask their queen wears....

I've been watching way to much Doctor Who.

I can see why it is often requested. It is quite spectacular. Now do you start with the main mask shape and then shape the snakes? Or the other way around?

Just need to pop one out every now and then to keep in practice, hm? You should try some other mythological creatures/people. Maybe a Minotaur to keep Medusa company?
