This is a fanciful fox mask done in the Venetian style. However, unlike a true Venetian mask (which is made of lightweight leather that is embellished with plaster & precious metal leaf & 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, white, red, 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. Signed & dated.
The mask will come with a suede loop for displaying on the wall. I use round cords and a sliding plastic cord clasp, for wearing...just push the button and slide the clip for a completely adjustable fit.
