A Pair of Painted Bird Masks

Painted Griffon and Eagle Skull Masks

Here are a new pair of finished masks, hand-painted and ready to wear! One is an iridescent griffon, with shifting shades of teal and purple in its feathers, and a vivid orange beak. The other is an eagle skull, painted to resemble realistic, yellowing bone.

As I only have one of each of these masks available, they are only purchasable through our Etsy shop:

Both blanks I used to create these masks are available here!

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

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.
