Fantasy Red-Tailed Hawk - Leather Mask by windfalcon Fantasy Red-Tailed Hawk - Leather Mask by windfalcon
In a similar style to my fantasy golden eagle mask, this one is inspired by the plumage of a red-tailed hawk, complete with a crest of rusty tail feathers.

Hand-carved and shaped 7-oz leather with 5-oz crest feathers and a hand-shaped leather beak, painted with acrylics.

I was wondering if you could tell me how you made the leather beak on your mask . My son is 4 years old and obsessed with birds, in particular red tailed hawks so this is what he has chosen to be for halloween . As a working mum it's late at night i am taking on the project i have hand painted his mask but am having trouble with the beak and getting it to droop at the end like yours  I have tried everything and got into quite a pickle !!!! Please any help you can give me or tell me if there is a template i could buy from you. I would be so grateful for any help please 
Thanks Sam

wow! What a magnificent piece! I'm always awestruck by your ability to capture birds in your works. The layering and painting, and then that beak! I love it :)

i can only imagine the work behind all of this and how long it must have taken to ever reach such a level of proficiency - it sure pays off though :)
