And Another New Mask!

Posted on

I just recently finished my new griffon mask. Because the molds I make are soft, the original sculpture is often left intact. Normally, once I’ve done a test cast and verified that the mold is good, the sculpture gets destroyed and the clay recycled to use again! But I’ve been wanting to do a raptor skull, and there’s the shape just waiting for me.

As you can see in the photo comparing the two masks, I didn’t want the new mask to be too similar to the griffon I just finished, so the changes were fairly extensive. Even the shape of the beak ended up rather different, thinner and with a more pronounced hook at the end.

Blanks of both new masks are now available in the shop!

Demolding the New Griffon Mask

Posted on

Well, that’s new. I made a video! And I’m actually in it! …sort of.

I decided to record the demolding process for my new mask, a lovely, feathery griffon! There’s a lot of detail in this sculpture. I do love feathers!

Mask blanks are now available in the shop.

I Am A Dragon Decal and Pin

I Am A Dragon Vinyl Decal and Button

So… Phoenix, AZ temperatures have once again done their yearly soar into temperatures you can’t really describe to someone unless they’ve been here. Seems like a good time to be a dragon, really. (Or just hide inside and enjoy the fact that air conditioners exist.)

I’ve had the “I Am A Dragon” pinback button design for a while now. I figured it would look excellent as a vinyl decal, so I converted it into a design that could be cut easily on my machine.

Proclaim it to the world – I AM a dragon!

Lizardman Mask Kit – Updated Version Now Available

Fully Painted Lizardman Mask Example

I created the first version of my lizardman mask back in 2014, and – to put it lightly – I have learned a bunch about maskmaking, molding, and casting since then! There is now a brand new lizardman mask kit available.

For those who were waiting, thank you very much for your patience. 🙂

Round Dragon Fossil (Spec. 1612-AL)

Round Dragon Fossil (Spec. 1612-AL)

I sculpted the original of this miniature dragon fossil in clay, this time with a round chunk of “rock” as the background so it could hang directly on a wall without the need to be framed. Each bone is three dimensional and quite realistic in appearance. The sculpt is about 7″ in diameter. Each finished piece is hand painted by me.

I only have these listed on Etsy when I’ve got one painted and ready to go. If I have any of them available at the moment, they will be at this link: Fossil Dragon Skeleton

New Button and Vinyl Designs

The rat, scorpion, and Halloween cat are pinback button designs I’ve been bringing to shows for a little while, but hadn’t gotten uploaded to the store! The skulls and “I Love Cats” design are brand new. I just had to turn “I Love Cats” into a vinyl decal too!

Bone Cat Skull

I painted one of my big cat skull masks to resemble yellowed bone, complete with black eye and nose mesh to disguise the wearer. I love this look for my skull masks, simple yet incredibly creepy and effective all at once!

This hand-painted mask is available in the Etsy shop. If you’d like to try your hand at painting one, we’ve also got these:

New Mask: Silver Dragon

Silver Dragon

My husband, Robbie, really liked the copper dragon mask I painted a little while ago, and wanted to try out a similar paint job but in silver. It turned out beautiful, don’t you think?

His lovely aged silver dragon mask is available in the Etsy shop. If you want to paint a mask of your own, we have dragon mask blanks available too!

New Mask: Chimera Cat

Chimera Cat Mask

New mask! This is one of Robbie’s painted works. It’s a chimera cat, an unusual color pattern where the kitty’s genes cause half of their face to be one color, half another. The most famous is a lovely cat called Venus, but there are a number of kitties like this. Often even their eyes are different colors!

This hand-painted, ready-to-wear chimera cat mask is available from Etsy. If you’d like to paint your own cat mask, we’ve also got these:
