Cthulhu leather mask, green and gold by shmeeden Cthulhu leather mask, green and gold by shmeeden
Another colour variation on my Cthulhu mask design. This one has a subtly metallic green as its base, with dark blue-green shading and coppery-gold highlights. I finished the entire surface with a gloss varnish to give the piece a wet look. The spines along the top represent the points of Cthulhu's wings.

The mask is sculpted from a single piece of leather, and is done free-hand, with no forms or molds, from an original template of my own design.

This particular design and colour combination can be ordered here on Etsy: [link]

I also have a number of other leather masks available there for purchase, in my main shop: [link]

I would love to hear what you think. Thank you for checking out my work!

Very pretty. I like how the gold fades into the green. It gives the mask a nice burnished effect.
