Day of the Dead black and white mask by maskedzone Day of the Dead black and white mask by maskedzone
This particular mask is listed over on etsy here - [link]

A Day of the Dead (also known as Dia de los Muertos) mask! I've always found them to be so beautiful. They are traditionally made from paper maché, but I thought I'd try my hand at a leather version which will combine the beautiful painting and design of the traditional masks, but with the durability that only leather can give.

This beautiful mask is truly wearable art. It would be perfect for Halloween, a masquerade dance, and, of course, Day of the Dead celebrations. This mask is light weight and comfortable to wear, but would look wonderful as a piece hung on a wall.

The base of the mask is white and the design is painted freehand in black.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

~~~~~~~~~~

Nice, quality, smooth leather painted with acrylic and it's ready to go! This mask is made from one piece of 7 oz vegetable tanned leather. There is an elastic chord that is easy to tie off for quick adjustments. One size fits adults. I'd be happy to spray the mask with a sealant upon request. I have a matte or high-gloss version to choose from. Please leave a note upon ordering if you'd like it sealed.

Custom masks available. Feel free to look through my flickr gallery for a feel of some of my previous designs. - [link]

Enjoy!
