Gryphon leather mask, dark brown and bronze by shmeeden Gryphon leather mask, dark brown and bronze by shmeeden
My latest mask design! Wet-molded vegetable-tanned cow leather, painted with acrylic in a dark chocolate brown with bronze highlights. Hand-sculpted and hand-painted. My own design.

These masks are lightweight, flexible, sturdy, and absolutely wearable! They come with two ties attached.

Also available on Etsy, here (with additional photos): [link]

Having a TON of fun making these, and am looking forward to trying some more designs...

Oh I'd love to photograph this on a mode. Alas, I could never afford several masks of this quality for project shoots. T_T

Really love this one. Swear if I had the extra cash for splurging I'd totally own this for myself!

Thank you. :) If I ever get the money I'll be buying one. Don't see me being special enough to do loaners for shoots. XD

It's tempting, actually, but I can't spare any of them this close to Christmas. It would be pretty awesome to see some shots of them, though! :) Maybe we could work something out in the new year...

Now that would be awesome. I'm taking time out towards the holidays and doing modeling work in the New Year anyways. So sounds like it could be a winner. :)

Thank you! They're actually a lot warmer and richer in person, but I could only do so much with the photos.
