Teal Persian Leather Mask by merimask Teal Persian Leather Mask by merimask
Keeping busy on a ~really cold~ Sunday afternoon. I just finished a couple new Persian masks. Here's one in colors I really love (I sort of did this one just for me).

I called this a "Persian Mask" simply because the idea for this design came to me one night when I was staring at a Persian rug I own. You can see the mosque designs in the corners.

It is a super-comfortable mask to wear, & one of my most popular designs. I intentionally used a LOT of different colors because I wanted it to go with everything.

Like all my work, this mask is hand carved from 8oz leather, shaped without a mold or form, & painted with a combination of colorfast Liquitex acrylics in teal, gold, bright copper, brown and black.

I browsed whole your collection and this is the one that I felt the most connection with.
So I added it to my favourites.
I hope to see new work of you soon, because you are a very talented artist.
I hope you can keep people inspired like you did with me.
Keep up the good work!!!
Bye.

This is stunning, I would absolutely wear that to a ball or something. How did you learn to shape leather like that?
