Medusa Masks by merimask Medusa Masks by merimask
Just finished a couple Medusa masks. Very proud of my design; people try to copy it all the time but none have quite managed to figure out how I do it. All one piece of leather.

Thank you.  :) Yes, my new Duochrome color-shifting iridescent acrylics really bring out the dimension of the scales.  Fun!

Thank you.  :)  Yep, I've always loved Medusa.  I think she's misunderstood.

Did Beki ever tell you the story of why she became a Gorgon? She is absolutely misunderstood!

I like how incredibly lifelike you made the snakes look. They each seem to take on a personality of their own, which is what makes the masks so effective.

You were the one who made me want to make masks and work with leather and I always try very hard not to copy you, but that sort of sounds like a challenge.

The snakes must have been hard to do, then again, I know very little about crafting with leather
