Black Lion Leather Mask

The Black Lion.

Like all my masks, this is hand carved from 8oz leather, shaped without a mold or form, & painted with a combination of Liquitex acrylic paint and alcohol-based dye in black, with pewter paint drybrushed atop. The slightly silver cast of the accenting paint really sets off the carving.

By the way, I LOVE the way the black mask photographed against the backdrop of Fall leaves on the lawn. I wish that I could preserve those leaves somehow because I'd love to photograph all my black masks against them.

You can order this mask from my Etsy shop: www.merimask.etsy.com
