While this is one of the earliest designs, the length of time it has taken us to finally get around to creating it was certainly worth it. ~Oakwitch's cutting/tooling, and =CricketWings's leather painting has certainly improved. We're trying to step up the volume of complexity in our masks.

This mask was created with a tree spirit (and fun tooling!) in mind. The leaves are attached snugly in places to avoid any discomfort.

This mask fits comfortably on a variety of face shapes and sizes!

The Forest mask was created from 4 ounce vegetable tanned leather and liquitex acrylic paint. It is sealed with liquitex matte varnish, which can withstand anything from sweat to rain (though heavy water exposure is not recommended).

This hand crafted leather mask is cut and tooled by ~Oakwitch, designed and painted by =CricketWings

This looks very complex. How long did it take to make?
OakMyth's avatar
Quite a while ^^; The painting and tooling are probably the most time consuming. I'd say a grand total of roughly 6 hours.
Amazing gallery,your leather work is beautiful :)

I love this one. The colors are amazing, and the twisted tips look wonderful!

Thanks Jess! Twisting leather is perhaps one of my favorite parts about making masks. I love molding them in fun ways :)

Lovely. Were it warm tones, it could be flames as well.
OakMyth's avatar
Indeed! I've been thinking about fire themed masks lately. Flames are tricky to cut out but it would certainly be an exciting challenge!
Thank you :)

Stepping up the complexity indeed. This is certainly an intricate mask. Excellent detail work.
