Golden Eagle Firebird - Leather Mask by windfalcon Golden Eagle Firebird - Leather Mask by windfalcon
A commission mask for ~ChrisSawyerArt, of an autumn/fire inspired golden eagle mask, with a crest that would make a harpy eagle jealous. :3

One problem I found myself running into with my really elaborate crested raptor masks was the weight. If you're going to wear it (which is kind of the whole point of a mask!), it needs to be comfortable, and if it's too heavy, it's going to slip and push down on the nose. So with this mask, I used thinner leather for the crest feathers, and it's much lighter than my previous masks! Success!

Hand tooled and shaped 7-oz leather with 4-oz feathers, painted with acrylics.
