The mask is absolutely gorgeous, showed a picture of my costume and they perfectly matched it. THe mask is so pretty I almost want to wear it every day. The colors are just beautiful and very comfortable to wear. Had great communication as well, kept me informed the whole time. Would definitely do business again!!!

I love the Tigers Eye Mask . I can appreciate the time that went into making it . The animal print is "way up" . It is soft on my face and There is no interference with my vision .. Another reason why I chose handmade . The gold in this mask looks beautiful on my deep skin tone Thanks so much!! Celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness next month!! Hope I win the contest!!

The Art Nouveau of the Mask-Making World

We are a group of sisters and friends who started making masks as accessories for a fancy party and became addicted. Rather than curb that addiction (I mean, really, who WOULD!?), we opted to open up shop and share with the mask-deprived world!

Using very non-traditional mask-making methods and putting just about anything on a mask—from the usual feathers, glitter, and ribbon, to upcycled junk, broken jewelry, and scrap fabric--we consider ourselves the new-age artists of an age-old art form. We are the Mask Nouveau.

The Artisan Maskers also enjoy doing our own collaborative photo shoots, and are very grateful to the other fantastic Etsy vendors that have made our shoots a success!

    I love to find scraps and "junk" and turn them into something unique and beautiful. I am very inspired by literature and nature.

  • Emily


    I often look to Steampunk and Day-of-the-Dead for inspiration. I love to sculpt masks out of paper clay.

  • Julianna

    Masker, Photo Shoot Director

    I love anything that SPARKLES! I love to create masks that are flashy and grand and make the wearer feel like a fairytale princess.

  • Sarah

    Masker, Photo Editor

    I love to get my hands dirty with any art medium I can find. I especially love to use vibrant colors in my mask designs.

Welcome to Artisan Maskers! We are a group of friends, cousins, and siblings that started making papier-mache masks for a party and just couldn't quit. All of our masks are hand made with care.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
We happily accept PayPal or Etsy direct checkout (with credit or debit card) and Etsy gift cards.
We send all packages via USPS Priority Mail. Each package includes tracking/delivery confirmation and insurance.

Packages should arrive within 3-5 BUSINESS DAYS of receipt of payment, so please plan accordingly if you need the mask for a particular event. If you do not receive your mask within this time frame, please contact us.

We reuse shipping materials whenever possible; our masks are wrapped in tissue paper and then packed in a sturdy box with re-used packing peanuts, bubble wrap, or newspaper from the scrap bin. If you are purchasing a mask as a gift, and would like it to arrive in a “pretty” box (not previously used), please inform us in the “notes to seller” section during checkout, so we can be sure to accommodate you.

Fine Art Prints generally can't be shipped in the same package as masks (and prices reflect this). They are shipped within a water-resistant plasticine envelope in stay-flat cardboard mailers. In the event that they can be shipped in the same package as other items ordered, we will refund any postage overage as soon as possible.

Due to having many contributors to our site, shipping costs reflect not just the cost of postage, but administrative costs as well. By including these costs in shipping, we are able to keep our mask prices lower.
Refunds and Exchanges
All of our masks are intended to be worn...but some are fragile, so handle carefully. Due to the special event nature of our masks, we generally cannot refund or exchange any mask after purchase. However, if you feel we in any way misrepresented the item or are dissatisfied with your purchase, we are happy to consider each case on an individual basis. Never hesitate to contact us with any concern or question!

If your mask arrives damaged in the mail, we may be able to repair it. Please contact us and send us pictures of the damage. Masks needing repair must be returned to us (at your expense) WITH ALL PIECES INCLUDED and we can then make necessary repairs and return it to you FREE OF CHARGE. If you opted to purchase shipping insurance, keep all damaged materials (including the box) and contact us. We would be happy to help walk you through the claims process with the USPS.
