Siamese Cat Leather Mask by merimask Siamese Cat Leather Mask by merimask
Here is something I haven't made in a long time...a cat mask! I changed my old design; completely re-worked just for Etsy. ^_^

The mask is hand carved from 8oz leather, each hair individually carved by hand with a 1/4 angle ceramic blade. Then the mask is shaped without a mold or form, & painted with a combination of Liquitex acrylics and acrylic stains in cream, brown and black.

I think this one is a seal point...though it's probably more like a chocolate point Siamese. More cats to come. I'm working on a calico and a black & white "tuxedo cat" right now.

Available in my Etsy shop: [link]

Beautiful! I had a lynx point siemese once named Chloe. She was a survivor. At the age of 19 she fell about 20 feet onto a hardwood floor and only got a cut lip! She also survived being hit by a car as a kitten, and many other things.

Siamese are pretty smart & tough, but they do tend to find creative ways to get into trouble. :-)

Yea, that they do. Ours was a bit messed up in the brain, because she was hit by that car as a kitten. It made her so sweet though. She never claw or bit anyone, and let our pet mouse sleep on top of her. The poor thing was afraid of birds too X3. I miss her, but she had a good long life ^w^

I love the fur detail. This is such a pretty mask, and it honestly looks like a cat.

It's simple, compared to some of your designs, but still elegant and has more of a sense of realism rather than flash. I likes it. The ears are especially well done.

Thank you! I agree, it's pretty basically kitteh, but the fun is in the details. I see lots of cat masks out there but none with all the hairs carved.

*whispers* That's because they're not as good as you.

Don't tell them, though, it's a secret. ;)
