Mask 2 by syrinxfox Mask 2 by syrinxfox
Hand cut and distressed tin sheeting, screen mesh, jewelry findings.

Story behind mask in LJ

Head is a SOOM Sard.

Craptastic temp faceup by me.

Two other views of the mask here:[link] [link]

See it on the finished doll here ---> [link] [link] [link]


ETA: OK WOW, I never expected to wake up and find anything of mine as a Daily Deviation. Thank you guys so much for the comments and faves. It means a lot to me that something I've done is liked.

ETA2: The size of the mask is about 1.5 inches high and 2 inches wide. It's rather small.

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-09-28
Mask 2 by =syrinxfox. Hand cut and distressed tin sheeting laid over screen mesh, and jewelry findings. Made for a doll whose persona is someone who angers so easily that the mask has to be worn to prevent him from using spoken magic against you. Someone you don't want getting mad at you even if the mask can't be removed by him. Do please check out the other views in =syrinxfox's gallery of this mask, including on the beautifully finished doll. ( Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

Wow.  It floors me that this is only two inches...honestly, until I read the description all the way, the detail had me thinking it was full size. O_O

This mask is amazing!!! Out of morbid curiosity, how much would something like this cost to commission? (something like this would tie in beautifully with my woefully mute dragoness, Kaida.)

I love it. It's very unique. Ever consiter making one large enough for people? I can really see something like this for cosplay or some kind of epic fantasy costume. Very well done.

Actually, I would have preferred you asked before using my work without permission.

I appreciate that you like it and if you had asked, I most likely would have said yes, but since you didn't I ask that you please take it down.

This is not for sale or rent. It's also only 2 inches big, so unless it's for a doll, it wouldn't work for you anyway.

I found this via #DD-Catalogue and I was simply amazed!:jawdrop: So many little details in such a small format. It's very elegant and I immediately wanted to know the story behind it. The concept of being a magic seal is quite interesting! Very lovely work!

I did, I'm holding off commissions right now in lieu of real life things. Thank you.

How exactly would you go about working with me? You can send me a note. I may be interested but I'm kind of unsure what all is involved.

Late congrats on your DD! This is an amazing piece...kind of has a hellraiser feel to it.

syrinxfox Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2009
Thank you.

Honestly, I've never seen Hellraiser. The pattern was based on an Asian motif I found and the design concept was simply based on wanting him to have a mask with dangly things on it. I'm not very deep or meaningful with this stuff, lol.

Thank you! I don't think I'll be making any for selling, the only way I'd do another is via commission because of how much work goes into them. I'm not going to do it if I don't have a guaranteed buyer. However, I'm not sure people would like the price...lol.

oh my, well how much is it? I can try and commsion you when i get money if it isnt to much, it may be a few weeks though XD

syrinxfox Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2008
You're looking at about $100-150 depending on the detail work. They take me about 5 days to do and are a lot of work, which is why it's what it is. I normally only do commission via trade, [see -->[link] but right now, I need the money more than the items so I'm blowing that for a bit.

I have a few other trade commissions I need to complete so I wouldn't be able to do it for a bit anyway. You wouldn't need to commit to anything anyway unless I had money in-hand.

If you decide you want to, just note me and we can talk details.
