New Brown Kitsune Mask by merimask New Brown Kitsune Mask by merimask
Well, my old pictures of the brown kitsune mask were awful awful awful, so I made a new mask and took brand new pictures. Much better this time.

This is my own design based losely on the traditional Kyogen theater Kitsune (fox). It is carved from one piece of leather & hand shaped, using no molds or forms. Then I painted it with a combination of colorfast Liquitex acrylics (in bright gold, red and black) & a water-based brown antique stain. The stain accentuates the natural grain of the leather & gives the whole mask the appearance of hand-finished wood. The entire mask is then sealed with a waterproof clear coat acrylic. Little imperfections are part of the charm of this piece...no two will be alike.

This mask is available right now at my online Etsy shop: [link]

I love this mask so much. I lust after it on etsy every time I do a search for fox-related things. ;;

Hmmm perhaps a bit too much negative space on this one.

LOL sorry. :-) You'll have to settle for my tutorials (in my DA journal section).

Yes, I´ve already studied them and think about how to get some leather for the time after my exams.

1-800 TANNERY...they deliver to your home & are the best priced, best-quality leather in the US. Bellies run about $15 each and one is enough to try a few projects...
