The Martyr is a one-of-a-kind masquerade skull mask in burned papier-mache.

This mask answers the age-old question of what would happen to one of our handmade papier-mache skull masks if you LIT IT ON FIRE. (But, really. Julianna did it.) Handmolded, the mask was in a rough skull shape before the flames took hold. The incredible shading and color (it ranges from nearly white through spots of deep russet brown into dark, ashy grey) is all just the natural effect of the smoke and flames. Once the burning took its controlled course, the mask was cooled (obviously) and aired and then entirely coated in several coats of exterior strength Mod Podge to give it a more polished luster as well as to strengthen and seal it. The mask ties on with black satin ribbon and the back has been partially lined in canvas as well as felt for both durability and comfortable wear.

Please note that this mask is wearable! It is, however, more fragile than some of our other masks, due to the processes used, so it may require more careful handling.

The ArtisanMaskers are not in the business of decorating other peoples' masks. :) Every single one of our masks is made, by us, of papier-mache using our own unique methods. This allows us the freedom to create unique works of wearable art that aren't easily duplicated.
