This is for a Venetian style mask. It is full sized, meaning that it will fit an average sized adult face, and its title is “Groefin”. The base is papier mache and it has been almost completely encrusted with real lace, to detail the mask. The finish is not paint but silver metal leaf that has been antiqued, to bring out the details and sealed to keep it beautiful. It has a wide crown of genuine coque feathers that are naturally variegated in a range of white and browns. The mask is also detailed with a number of sparkling rhinestones. 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” (23 cm) wide, 6” (15.5 cm) high and around 3” (7.5 cm) deep. The soft brown vintage ribbon ties are 14” (36 cm) long. The feather crown comes out an additional 4” (10 cm). there is a 2" long hanging loop, hidden behind the feather ruff. It is signed and titled on the inside.
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 large feather ruff hides and alters the wears hair and hairline so it is an especially good disguise. If you are planning on wearing it, and have any concerns about the fit, then please contact me and I'd be happy to give you some more exact measurements.

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.
