Cthulhu mask, metallic black and silver by shmeeden Cthulhu mask, metallic black and silver by shmeeden
A new (wearable!) Cthulhu mask, in metallic, glossy black with a hint of blue, with silver highlights. Hand-molded from vegetable-tanned cow leather, and hand-painted. These are done entirely free-hand, and no moulds are used.

I pushed the wet look on this one a bit further (though the photo doesn't show it well) by adding gloss varnish to the raised areas to give it a nice, wet shine. With the glossy areas, and the texture of the leather, it really looks like something alive that crawled up out of the sea!

This piece was a commission, but they can be made to order. The listing is here on Etsy, along with a photo from another angle: [link]

(Note: The highlights are the same both sides -- the only difference is the lighting!)
