Goat leather mask, brown and bronze by shmeeden Goat leather mask, brown and bronze by shmeeden
A new mask design, and my most ambitious one yet! This is a full 20" tall from the top of the horns to the tip of the nose, and is composed of five individually hand-sculpted pieces of leather.

The mask is deceptively lightweight, and very wearable! It can be hung on a wall, as well, or actually stands freely, with its ears and nose acting as a little tripod, if placed on a shelf or table-top.

It's available for order now in my Etsy shop. If you're interested in one in time for Halloween, please get your order in soon! I can also do custom colours.

The link to purchase one -- and to check out the look of it from another angle! -- is here. It was tough to decide between the two photo angles, so please take a look at the other shot if you like this piece! [link]

Amazing! I love your masks! You are super talented! How long does it take you to make them? (Sorry, I'm sure you get that question a lot)

Thanks! And the time really varies. They can take anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days. Depends on how complicated they are, and what kind of paint finish I use.

The front angle is amazing by the way. (The other picture.) If this wasn't sooo expensive I would totally pick one up for myself. Great design!

Thanks! I decided to change this one to the front angle after all. The other one shows the depth better, but yeah, this is more dramatic.
