Alright, I admit this one is a little sinister. It's those unblinking doll eyes that really do it.
This piece wasn't easy. I've modified, redone, and re-modified my patterns to make it look just like two bird masks joined right above your nose. And then there's the little mother-of-pearl dolls eyes, mounted securely enough to stand up to all the abuse my masks get in their wearing and packing. But it was all worth it.
The wonder of a copper mask is in the strength and give of the material. Because it is so strong, the mask can be very thin- this makes it both very light, and makes it possible to fit as a second skin. These won't block your peripheral vision the way a leather. paper maiche, or plastic mask would. They can be very comfortably worn all day and night- no worries about sweat or rain causing them to soften and lose their shape. Rinse it with clean water at the end of the night before putting it away. They can stand up to anything you throw at them. As for packing? Throw it in your bag. If you're checking the bag, maybe stuff a balled up pair of socks where your forehead would go. Easy.
Not planning to wear your mask? He or she won't mind. They can hang flat against a wall, or sit on a shelf.
