Merrow Mask V3 by merimask Merrow Mask V3 by merimask
Merrow V3. This version of the "Merrow" is special, because the way the leather resisted the base black alcohol dye created a happy accident, resulting in a mottled appearance. It reminded me of a catfish or a muddy spotted koi, so I accented the darker scales with metallic teal, the lighter areas with pale copper, and added just a bit of teal to the ends of the swirled seaweedy mane. It is definitely one of a kind, and something I'll be unable to repeat. In the shop here: [link]

Love the colors. Too bad it's only one of a kind! Though you could probably re-create a similar effect and try out different color schemes.
