~Long Face

~Long Face

Long Face is a plaster and wire fantasy mask measuring 20″ tall by 10″ at it’s widest. He was one of my first full sized masks and actually hung in the gable of my past Florida home for several years. Due to the layering of plaster and acrylic he seems to weather well. We recently mounted him in a recycled cedar fence board frame on a richly textured fabric. The overall piece measures 19″ wide by 29-1/4″ tall.

This guy just never stops smiling! ~Glad Cow~ is a 24″ tall wall hanging, and stands as testament to the durability of our pieces. This fellow has spent a total of 5 years hanging around outdoors and has weathered little.

~Dragon in a Box~

~ A Slice of KarenDragon ~

This piece is an actual “life” mask of Karen. The process of sitting for the mask is less than one half hour of the subjects time. The rest happens in studio. The results are quite realistic and provide a lasting keepsake.

Trust me… you’d never get this Dragon in a box!

This lightweight and comfortable partial masque was custom fit for Karen and painted by her to a very durable pearlescent finish with acrylics, and final coated with a water resistant top coat.
We will happily create a custom designed and fitted masque for you based on your idea or vision. A custom fit partial mask, complete to the level of ~Pearl, is modestly priced at $120.00. We will take your masque to any level you desire. We can create the form and complete the shaping and acrylicizing, at which point you can take over and finish yourself, or even have your favorite artist paint for you. Ready to paint and decorate, your custom partial masque will cost $80.00.
These masques are very durable and with any reasonable care will last a lifetime of functional use. Order a group for an event whether social or arts. Consider the keepsake value of family masque portraiture, and give us a call. We show work and accept commissions by appointment in our private gallery. We create the basic custom masque shell at our place or yours, by appointment as well.

Thanks for your time, see the smiles we cast your way,
David and Karen
