Red Serpentine Dragon Mask by merimask Red Serpentine Dragon Mask by merimask
I've been busy with some big commissions...here is something I just finished over the weekend. A custom-colored red Serpentine Dragon.

The original (elsewhere in my gallery) was done with rattlesnake browns but this guy is in shades of red with black mane. Silver accents the black, as well as the scales.

As ever, this is hand carved and hand shaped 8 ounce veg-tanned leather. It's wet-formed by hand, set with heat, and painted with Liquitex acrylics.

Custom orders like this one can be commissioned at my Etsy shop: [link]

Very reminiscent of a couple of snakes I've had the opportunity to see recently, which has got me wondering... could there be a rattledragon? If a dragon started rattling its tail at me, I do believe I'd be high-tailing it in the opposite direction. ;)
