Artwork Description

This mask is a commission for my friend Lillain who wanted a sea fae mask for Halloween. She has a gorgeous skirt and I tried to create a mask to compliment the colors in the clothing as well.

This mask is hand tooled and shaped from 8-oz leather. It is painted with acrylics, and most of it is actually iridescent. I thought if I wanted to go with fish scales, then iridescent pigments would work best. The 'fin' areas are fabric with a bit of paint to give it opacity and iridescence. I used freshwater pearls to give it a genuine oceanic touch.
