Interference Blue Green Fighting Fish Mask by merimask Interference Blue Green Fighting Fish Mask by merimask
More "fun with spectrum-shifting acrylics". I wanted to see how they looked on a black base. The answer is, they needed some augmenting with Duochrome, because they're basically transparent paints that reflect one color (blue on the bodies, green on the fins). So I added green/gold Duochrome to the tips of the fins and aqua/blue to the centers of the bodies, and it gave the whole mask more dimension. It almost glows. Can't wait to try Medusa in these colors.

Made entirely by me, entirely by hand. Hand-carved leather, acrylic paint, and love.

Even though it is still bright, it has a darker feel to them than other masks you've done.

Lovely work. Fascinating the way you've compensated for proportions by manipulating the fin sizes. Bravo! It reminds me of two fish circling one another, as in the pisces symbol :)
