White Tiger Mask by merimask White Tiger Mask by merimask
I finally finished it! By popular demand; a White Tiger mask.

As ever, this is hand carved & shaped without molds or forms out of 8oz leather (each is a one-of-a-kind sculpture). Then, the mask is hardened with heat & painted with colorfast Liquitex acrylics. I did several layers of gray paint with white drybrushed atop that, for texture. The black stripes were the fun part (& his cute pink nose).

This is a signed, dated, numbered original: White TIger #2. Available right now in my Etsy shop. [link]

I absolutely love the classic tiger mask, the orange one.
This white one, though, looks purpleish to me. :O Is it just me or is it painted with a bit of purple?

I have a question, is there any way possible that you could do another tiger mask: a lot like this one yet with the base color being black and the stripes being silver???? if you could please, and when I have money I would so buy it from you what ever the cost when I have the money. You are an awsome artist and would just love it if you could or would.

Hope to hear back from you.

Oh man I wish I had the money for one of these. It's beautiful and looks so well made, and my favourite animal.
