Red Gold Medusa Mask by merimask Red Gold Medusa Mask by merimask
I just finished this girl today; another one of my Medusa masks.

It was a custom order from my Etsy shop; a black Medusa with snakes that shaded from red to copper to gold, in metallic tones. The eyes of the tiny snakes are 4mm garnet beads.

This mask is made from one piece of 8oz leather, hand carved & tooled, and hand shaped with no mold or form. Painted with Liquitex acrylics.

Custom pieces like this can be requested only at my online shop: [link]

It's beautiful. All the work with the scales is stunning. And I love garnet, so that's a big bonus in my book!

Wow... I'm amazed!

The color scheme on this one is amazing! It's my favorite medusa mask so far, very much how I imagined medusa myself.

Another amazing mask! Where do you find the time to keep putting out such amazing pieces?? Especially masks with so much fantastic detail in them! Its mind boggling!!! I love, LOVE, the beads in the eyes of the snakes, how each one coils in its own way, and all the individual scales you've gone and added! So amazing!

You know I love your Medusa masks so this is a beautiful addition to your collection! Is that a curled tail with rattle I see in the middle of the mask? This is gorgeous!

The colours make this one look positively poisonous. :D That pattern around the eyes reminds me of a cobra, for some reason.

I don't think I've seen this mask from you before, guess you don't get that many requests for it, and yet again I am amazed at the sheer amount of detail you put into these masks.

Nice. I love Liquitex. Are you liking their gold better than Jacquard Lumiere?
I've been taking a tooling/carving class at Tandy leather. Now that I've "felt your pain" ;) I admire even more the amount of time and effort you put into stamping on a mask like this one. Hats off to you.
