Dew Drop Green Man Mask by Angelic-Artisan Dew Drop Green Man Mask by Angelic-Artisan
For Sale @ Etsy :pointr: [link] | For Sale @ Artfire :pointr: [link]
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

An ancient symbol of growth and fertility, the Green Man is a popular motif for mask-makers. I've taken great pains to make the leaves look as realistic as possible by recreating dew drops and glossy leaves and adding leaf speckles with paint droplets.

Carved and layered in three separate layers of leather, painted with acrylics, and sealed with varnish. The glossy leaves and dew drops are not actually wet, but were made to look this way with resin droplets and Gloss varnish.

This mask is signed and dated by the artist and is affixed to the face with elastic. The backside of the mask that touches the face has been lined with moleskin in key locations for maximum comfort.

I had a lot of fun playing with layers in this one. Resin is much fun too. Such a cool water simulation it makes! I wonder if you can tint it red somehow and then do blood splatters that stay wet looking bua ha ha! *is morbid*
