Knave Of Hearts Pair

This pair of "Knave Of Hearts" masks just went up in my shop today...I sold the other ones and I want to keep a set of these around for Valentine's Day. I changed the checkered pattern a bit...these are elongated diamonds.

They're simple masks but fun. A lot of folks say they get an "Alice In Wonderland" vibe from them.

As ever, this is made from one piece of hand carved, hand shaped, heat hardened 8oz leather. Painted with Liquitex acrylics and embellished with a gold paint pen.

This mask is available at my online shop: [link]

I love the use of the red here. It balances out the white really well without seeming like too much red, even on the mask on the left. Gorgeous as always! :)

Thank you. :-) The bright red seems a bit too much sometimes...I should really try these with burgundy.
Random-Star's avatar
Burgundy would be nice. It'd keep the contrast and the same general 'look' of red, but wouldn't assault the eyes as much. :)

ooo, these would look great on a couple! I love the complementing color paterns :)
merimask's avatar
I agree, they'd be awesome at a party on a couple. ^_^
