This is for a Venetian style mask. It is full sized, meaning that it will fit an average sized face, and its title is “Domino”. The base is papier mache and it has been almost completely encrusted with real lace, to detail the mask. I decided to something really different with this mask and, instead of gilding it I went with a strong, glossy finish in bright white! It has a full crown of genuine coque feathers that are a deep black with a hint of green iridescence on the top. This is the most extravagant style of Venetian mask I make! I hand-make each mask base and then individually design and hand-cut each one so they are all unique art pieces. The inside is black.
This piece is 9” (22.5 cm) wide, 5 1/2” (14 cm) high and around 3” (8 cm) deep. The black ribbon ties are 17” (43 cm) long. The feather crown comes out an additional 4” (10 cm). It is signed and titled on the inside and also has a 2” long hanging loop.
It may look fragile, but my masks are quite sturdy, my crafting method means they are more flexible than most Venetian ones, but just as strong. They can be worn with no problems so don't worry about having to take special care of it. Just keep it away from high levels of moisture. Each of my masks are hand-cut for both the edges and the eye-holes so they will vary from piece to piece.
The shape, amount of detail, and feather crown mean this mask is not only beautiful, but a great disguise. The stark black and white combination make it simply stunning! A white or black dress is all you need, with this mask, to be the belle of the ball. The rest of the time it will be a striking display piece!

I have some more in-depth discussion of my methods and of mask history on my website: www.artmasks.ca
We have tried to do a “worst case” on the shipping prices, due to the variances in Canada Posts costs by location. We will refund any overcharges.
