Small Dragon Mask by merimask Small Dragon Mask by merimask
Now, I often make these small half-masks & sell them at my Etsy site. They are affordable and comfortable to wear...I've sold dozens of them.

I got the idea to do one as an Asian dragon, though, and I have to say I find it utterly adorable. It's so colorful and fun! I'll definitely be doing more of these.

I never save the pattern, though, because I like the challenge of drawing something directly on the leather every time (it keeps things fresh for me), so this little guy is one-of-a-kind.

I did him in blue and copper and gold over black...next time I want to make a green and purple and gold one. At the Chinese Lantern Festival in Toronto, I'm always struck by the brightly contrasting colors of Chinese dragons, so I guess I'm trying to capture that effect.

As always, you can purchase my work at my Etsy shop: [link]

Wow, that's really awesome! I love the color contrast and the smoothness of the black base.

He is great. It is cool to see both your large and smaller works. Oh, by the way, the key chain dragon and hair piece I bought my daughter for Christmas are holding up great and she really loves them!
