Industrial Bast V5 by merimask Industrial Bast V5 by merimask
New! Industrial Bast mask, version #5...Egyptian cat goddess of music, fertility and dance. I did this one in a new color combination; black with "verdigris" (simulated aged weathered bronze), because I love the green tones of old copper and bronze.

Available in my shop, here: [link]
(beaded collar not included)

Did you use fibreglass to make this?

Nope, leather and brass clock parts.

This is gorgeous! It really reminds me of the Bast from the Sandman comics. :D Same dark blue color.

I say Anubis merely because he is usually depicted in black, not Bast.

These colors look amazing together! I love the greenish bronze technique, and I love how it looks with the gold and black.

You might've managed to get a "turquoise" from me, though more likely "bluish-green". Anyway, the black really sets off the "verdigris". ;)

Haha, it's more an effect than a color, per se. ;)

Oh my heavens... The combination of colours is just perfect. The necklace matches wonderfully as well.

I love Bast! This is so beautiful. Ive tried making my own but it doesnt compare to yours. Im working on a revised pattern of my first one, but I honestly dont think mine will ever look as nice as yours. You are so talanted.
