January's Mask by Angelic-Artisan January's Mask by Angelic-Artisan
For Sale @ Etsy :pointr: [link] | For Sale @ Artfire :pointr: [link]

Design Process :pointr: [link]
I'm proud to introduce my first original design! The rest of my masks have been fan-make thus far. It felt good to stretch my artistic legs and play with the many themes of January. Read more at the design process link for info on the mythology and flower lore for January.

You are looking at a unique limited edition mask that has been carved by hand from leather. This mask draws upon the themes of January with its Garnet birthstone and celebrated flowers, the Carnation and the Snowdrop. Because it is so intricate, I will only be making a limited number of this particular design!

The green accents in this mask are metallic and shimmer in the light. It is held to the face by organza ribbon tied behind the head. It is signed by the artist and numbered on the back of the mask.

This mask has been dyed with leather dye and hand painted with acrylic paints. It is finished with varnish and should withstand longterm wear. Though water-resistant, you should not dunk it in water.

I was afraid it'd come out too 'christmas' with red and green, but it really outshined my expectations! Glad you like.:meow:

Now THAT, is amazing workmanship. Tis true that the beauty of the mask works with whom creates and wears it and the beauty of this mask looks yet more amazing. That is an amazing mask, and I know you would find it odd for a complete stranger to ask you this, but I humbly ask, do you take commissions from people to make such masks, at a price, of course, for them?

Of course, your very welcome ^^ and I thank you for opening a venue in which I would be able to get a mask. It has been on my mind for a while so I have been contemplating how I would get such a mask, of course it would be one that isn't one of the plastic sorts and is quite genuine XD. Flattery aside I meant my comments each one, for if it had been on another I am very sure they mask would not have fit with them as well.

Indeed I do! I am actually an amateur mask maker and have only recently opened up commissions for masks. (You will be my first, in fact!) I would be most honored to make a mask for you, if it is within my skill level to do so.

If you have an idea, I would love to talk about it and we can decide the details from there.:) Just send me a Note at =ladydove7.
