Sakura Mask by merimask Sakura Mask by merimask
Here is a rather small mask I made last Spring...hence the cherry blossoms (sakura). It's small, but carving all those tiny flowers took forever so I only offered this mask ONE time in my shop. That'll happen...I never know when I'll discontinue a design.

Still, it was pretty. Made of leather of course, and no molds or stamps. No stamps! All those tiny flowers done by hand...sheesh!

As usual, please do check out my online shop at Etsy: [link]

You must be extraordinarily patient. ;P I doubt I could make it through doing that by hand!

gorgeous work! i love the detail you go into. this looks so amazing. the bronze/ terracotta background is a striking accompaniment to the pale delicate blossoms and remind me of the tiles on the roofs of some of the Shinto temples.

great work :)

Thank you! That's exactly what I was going for. The neutral brown background was very much like a roof tile...the cherry blossoms really popped against it.
