Summer Bird - Leather Mask by windfalcon Summer Bird - Leather Mask by windfalcon
A mask based on the bird form of one of the three Seasons sisters, Summer, from my Seasons stories. This is hand shaped and tooled from 8 oz leather with a green agate cabochon. It's painted with acrylics and tied with ribbon.

This is available for sale in my Etsy shop here: [link] Sold!

The suggester said: "I think her masks are unique, the way they're painted is amazing and really well done. I think anyone who likes to wear a mask, would totally love some of the masks she has on her gallery." I would go even further and say that even those who don't usually like masks will be blown away by her wonderful creations. They are made from carved, tooled and painted leather and designed and shaped by the artist herself. Summer Bird - Leather Mask is just one of the many wonderful masks =windfalcon has created.

I get my leather from Tandy Leather Factory which is a nationwide leather shop chain in the United States, though I see from your userpage that you're from Qatar. I'm not sure where you could get leather in your country, though Tandy does ship internationally. I'm not sure if they could ship leather to your country or not, but this is their website: [link] Good luck!

Ahahah I'll admit, I do feel a little sad when I have to part with a mask, but I just tell myself that it's going to someone who will wear it and put it to good use and enjoy it, whereas if I keep it it will just sit there.

I want to hang this up in an empty room and design the rest of the room around it.

Is that strange?

:+fav: This is such a different type of art from what is commonly seen, and I think it's wonderful.

Ahahah I think people should have more reason to wear masks! I would love to see an increase in masked balls :D I love wearing masks, but unfortunately, there are so few opportunities to wear them!

I know, right? I've always wanted to go to a masked ball!
And I seriously wouldn't mind wearing a cool mask in public...lol, if I did that, I should take a camera with me and take pictures of people's expresions :XD:. The world needs a little more fun in it, don't you think? If the world won't give us opportunities, we'll have to make them ourselves...or something like that?
