Masks have long been the tools of transformation and storytelling..although it was often real animal parts that were use.
These are the current designs.
|this particular fox is my own personal mask, he's well loved and well used!|
You can see here in the detail picture all the different techniques applied. I find that needle felting helps sculpt the shape. Every inch is hand done in order to retain the lovely dense quality. Whiskers are made from silver or gold wire and occasionally other items such as beads are added. A plainer mask can take 4 hrs to make but on average it takes 5 hrs per mask!
