This is a fanciful rabbit mask done in the Venetian style. However, unlike a true Venetian mask (which is made of lightweight leather that is embellished with plaster and precious metal leaf, and is VERY delicate), this mask is made with my own unique technique involving heavy-weight leather that is deeply hand carved. This achieves the ~look~ of a Venetian mask but is durable enough to wear anywhere, indoors or out. Even safe to travel with (the perfect mask to tuck in your suitcase on your next trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras!)
The leather is carved, shaped, hardened with heat, then painted with colorfast Liquitex acrylics in black, pale cream, copper, and bright gold. It is sealed with a waterproof clear coat, for durability.
I use no molds or forms, so this piece (like all my masks) is a limited edition original.
