Barn Owl - Leather Mask by windfalcon Barn Owl - Leather Mask by windfalcon
Since I don't have to scan these, I'm hoping posting photographs of masks appear accurate on this laptop monitor. Ugh I can't wait until I have a working computer again!

That aside, this was a commission from someone who wanted a realistic barn owl mask. I'm hoping to make many more of these :3 This was definitely a fun mask to make! I based this off of several photos I took of Silo, a resident barn owl at Horizon Wings. Their faces just lend themselves very well to mask shape!

This is hand-carved and shaped 7-oz leather and painted with acrylics.

This specific mask has already been bought, but if you're interested in your own barn (or other) owl mask, let me know!
