Industrial Owl version 1 by merimask Industrial Owl version 1 by merimask
New! This design is an elegant reworking of my original "Fantasy Owl" design. A new creation, combining clockwork and brass hardware elements with my stylized horned owl mask; "Industrial Owl".

It is made from one piece of 8oz leather, hand carved and shaped without molds or forms, then painted with colorfast acrylics in antiqued copper, gold, and black. The mask is sealed with a clear-coat acrylic, is water resistant, and safe to wear in any weather.

Then I augmented and decorated it with real brass clock parts, securely bolted and riveted to the piece.

So fun to have a little free time to work on new design ideas. :) This one is in my shop (probably not for long!) at this link here---> [link]

No way!!!
I did think I recognized the style. Your masks have been a key feature of my computer screen for a long, long time :D.

:) They're a very nice bunch of guys. It's so much fun to see how they use the masks.

My other half had a long chat with Leaf Dog last week- also said he was a sound guy. I know Fliptrix is a sound guy- I got a nice big up from him on facebook when I drew a sketch of him for fun.
Seriously though- your masks are amazing, keep up the awesome work!

What an interestingly unique mask! This is truly an amazing feat of artistry and style, making something as bulky as clockwork very elegant. Wonderful!

Was the nose hard to get right?

Nah not at all...the owl has a shorter nose than the wolves do so, easier.

What about the curve of the nose? Like at the end?
