Leather Skull Mask by merimask Leather Skull Mask by merimask
This is not my usual thing, but if I can't challenge myself & do something that's "not my style" once in a while, then I'm not a very versatile artist I suppose.

This mask was created from a client's team logo. Apparently this is going to be worn in a roller derby, or something like that? It'll be scary as heck to see this rolling towards you at 30 MPH I'll bet... O__O"

Created from one piece of 8oz leather. Carved, tooled, wet formed & heat set. Painted with Liquitex acrylics.

This was a custom order from my Etsy shop: [link]

I'm trying to put together a costume on a budget, based on a character I designed. I was looking for skull mask designs, and was pleasantly surprised to find a high-calibre mask artist on my top site.

Great work on this. I can agree that intimidation is a great tactic to use at speed, and there's not a great many things as intimidating as seeing a guy in a skull mask coming at you at 30+ MPH relative.

Follow the link on my front page, under the blue cat mask...the one marked "tutorials". It has helpful tips & sources that'll show you how I do these. Just don't copy! But the techniques are there for anyone to learn. :-)

I re-designed the skull, cut two out, & had some fun carving the heck out of them...swirls, flowers...I researched Dia Del Muerte motifs and came up with some that look very traditional. Painting is taking a LONG time though, because of all the colors. Should have something finished to show off soon, though. :-)
