Butterflies and Faeries and Pixies, oh my!

Took a first run at some butterfly-like designs. The mid-sized one may go through a few stages of evolution, but I was pleased with these to start. I like the way they work with just about any color scheme.

Small, butterfly-like masks in shimmery colors

I call these masks "Pixies," since they've got a kind of playful, whimsical feel.

Butterfly leather mask in teal

A butterfly in shades of shimmery teal and peacock, with elegant gold eyelashes and highlights, and curling antenna. Perfect for a mysterious fairy, or courtly lady.

 

Butterfly Leather mask

This mask is very large and impressive, but the many cut-outs that form the pattern on the wings keeps it lightweight.

Ok, now I know why everyone does Greenman masks. They’re wicked fun!
