This is for a mini Venetian style mask. It is ornament sized and comes with a stretchy gold hanging loop. The base is papier mache, the details are done in the traditional Venetian fashion of using real lace. The finish is not paint but gold metal leaf that has been antiqued, to bring out the details of the lace, and sealed to keep it beautiful. I hand-make each mask base and then individually design and hand-cut each one so they are all unique art pieces. This one has genuine black coque feathers (rooster), as an accent. The inside is black.
This piece is 4” wide, 2 ½” high and around 1 1\/2” deep. The feathers are an additional 6” high and the loop is aprox. 5” long.
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. The full sized ones 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.
This little gem looks terrific on a holiday tree or wreath, but most people display them all year 'round! They can fit a range of dolls, so please let me know if that is your intent and I can attach ribbon ties for you at no charge.
I have some more in-depth discussion of my methods and of mask history on my website: www.artmasks.ca
