So, I was contacted by the Martha Stewart show, and they might want me to do a demonstration of my mask-making technique on the show...right? If you're curious, check out my latest DA journal entry.
They wanted a couple samples of my work. One choice was obvious (the mask I'll be demonstrating for the show...pics of that coming soon), but what to do for the second mask?
Dragons are SO not Martha Stewart's style. Anything really exotic like my Persian motif masks...maybe not right for the yuppie "country livin'" image she is associated with. So hmm.
And then I got smart & went online & played with The Google a bit. Turns out Martha loves animals, and the animals she loves the most are her blue point himalayan cats!
So after learning that, my choice was easy. Does this make me a dirty whore? I suspect it does.
Like all my masks, this one is hand carved & shaped from one piece of 8oz leather. Painted with Liquitex acrylics.
I'll probably be offering this design in my Etsy shop eventually. [link]
