Take a look at the new mask I just added to the site.
The Magan Mask of Power appears in my book Stalking Shadows, book two of the Diamond Peak Series (a YA fantasy). The heroine of the story must wear it to prove to a Magan (Magicians) lord that she has the power to defeat the master demon. Those who wear the mask without that kind of personal power go insane. I made the mask around the time I wrote the book back in 2013, but I only finished it recently. Would you be able to wear the Magan Mask of Power? It’s designed so you can.
The scene it’s from has a kind of Gothic feel and it certainly has a Gothic fantasy style with the white face and amazing make up and headdress.
The making took a long time. I created the shape in clay, made a plaster mold of it, then pressed layers of papier mache into the mold. After it dried, I removed it from the mold and sanded it like crazy. It takes a huge amount of work to sand it smooth. Then I had to cut the holes in the papier mache and paint it. After painting, I added silver leaf, braid, glass jewels and findings. And here it is.
The mask is 38 cm (15″) tall, 33 cm (13″) wide and 12 cm (5″) deep.
It’s a one off, never to be repeated mask and is only AUD $199
