Barn Owl Flight - Leather Mask by windfalcon Barn Owl Flight - Leather Mask by windfalcon
I just have barn owl fever lately! All I want to make are barn owls. I got the idea for this mask after doing several owl-wing themed mask sketches, and this was my favorite. I'm also working on an alternative design for this one, which has an expanse of night sky above the owl, and along the nose. This is hand-tooled, shaped and painted 7-oz leather. Despite how delicate it looks, it's actually very sturdy, yet still flexible.

Since there's been requests to see pictures of my masks being worn, here's a photo of me modeling this particular mask:



This mask is available for sale in my Etsy shop - [link] Sold! Contact me if you're interested in one of these masks!

Very beautiful! I've always loved owls, and barn owls have been my favorite animal ever since I read Wesley the Owl a few years ago.

That was another alteration I was thinking of! Next time I make this mask I'll try the design without the head.
