Finally had a chance to photograph the Keeper of Secrets
mask in action! One of my more whimsical ventures into my beloved subject, the keyhole. You'll be seeing more in this vein from me with the Mechanical Masquerade
Stamping was used to give the keyhole a different texture with matte varnish painted over the 'hole' so that it stood out from the rest of the mask, which was made to gleam slightly with semi-gloss varnish. All shaped, carved, and painted by hand from leather!
I did a tutorial on how to achieve the antiqued metal effect here [link]
