Orange Fire Dragon Mask by merimask Orange Fire Dragon Mask by merimask
I don’t usually make orange masks ever (when I opened up my jar of orange paint it was actually dry!), but this custom-ordered orange Fire Dragon turned out really vibrant and stunning. Orange is such an energizing color.

Made of hand carved leather, acrylic paint (once I bought myself some more orange!) and love.

This is really cool looking! I've never seen a mask quite like this before. I love all the detailing in it, and although I'm not usually a fan of orange myself it just works with this! It would be a fun masquerade mask to have.

I am always struck by your need to have extravagant patience to curl each individual frill, horn, and whisker. There is such the obvious level of beyond professionalism to all your work [I'd say, Masterpiece!]!

I saw orange under your name and thought 'Huh? Andrea doesn't do orange!' I came to check to make sure what I saw was actually orange...but there it is.

I know! I'd never have done it unless it was an order, but the client was right. It's a pretty good color for a Fire Dragon. :)

You know, I peeked at some of your gallery (woops ;) ) and you really know your field! I've never looked at masks before (or even worked with leather), but I have to admire someone with such dedication. What's the process for making something like this?

The symmetry for such a complicate design is very well done. Is this all hand made? Either way hats off to you Merimask!

Yes, all shaped by hand. :) It's not exactly the same on both sides...you can see some deviation.

Wow! It really is bright. I'm not usually a fan of orange (or vibrant, warm colours), but this almost reminds me of a Chinese New Year festival I visited. :) I love the eyebrows, too, so curly! :D

Thanks! Actually I was thinking that in a future, a "Fire Dragon" with this orange for the scales but BRIGHT BLUE mane/curling parts...like a gas jet flame over glowing coals! Wouldn't that be crazy? :)

Orange is such an underated colour. Even though it's not my favourite, people often over look how useful it can be. Beautiful work as usual!

I like the highlights and shading you did with the orange. It really gives the paint depth and movement to match the curled leather. I bet it practically glows in the sunlight!

Thank you! I only used orange, bright gold (actually metallic gold paint which is really very shiny) and a little brown antiquing stain for contrast in the carving. Simple but effective. All the detail is in the carving, not so much in the painting. :)
