Medusa is one of my most tedious, time-consuming masks to make.  Don't get me wrong, I love making her...she just takes forever.  Every one of those tiny snake heads has to be shaped by hand, and then I sew little 4mm beads into them for eyes.  For this one I used malachite stone beads, 'cause I thought the green would look pretty with gold & copper.  That's a LOT of tiny little beads.

I was SO bummed when I sold this mask.  Usually I'm just fine with selling my work,(I'd be out of business pretty quick if I wasn't), but this one turned out so pretty, I almost wanted to keep it for myself.

Medusa is made out of a single piece of sculpted leather, and colored with a combination of alcohol-based dyes and Liquitex acrylic paints.
