Turquoise Moonstone Fox Mask by merimask Turquoise Moonstone Fox Mask by merimask
Here's a new design that is something really magical and special; a fanciful white fox adorned with silver filigree earrings and semi precious stone bead strands.

Like all my masks, this is made from 8oz leather, hand carved and hand shaped with no molds, stamps or forms. I took great care to carve every hair, because I wanted this mask to be as detailed as possible. It's painted with a combination of acrylic stains and colorfast acrylic paints in bright white with gray fur details and deep iridescent teal/green highlights on all the black points. It is sealed with a clear acrylic coat for durability. There is a bright turquoise cabochon inlaid in the center of the forehead.

Firmly bolted to the ears are two antiqued silver filigree pieces (made in the USA, nickle and lead free). Hanging from these are several strands of semi-precious beads; two kinds of turquoise, quartz, moonstone and high-quality blue labradorite beads.

Only one like this!  Available at my Etsy shop, here: www.etsy.com/listing/193694654…

Each mask leaves me breathless... and the way you so elegantly merge the stones and decorations with the style and content of the mask... you are a master of your craft!!

I am just in awe.  Your craftsmanship is always on point but the design and balance of this mask is the kind of awesome I feel I need to use fancy art terms for.  You have achieved both a sense of Shibui and Gesamtkunstwerk.  You continually elevate what would be craft for most to exquisite art.

Oh wow! I think this is the best colour scheme you've done with this mask style. Very pretty.
