Rainbow leather cat mask


Art: Rainbow leather cat mask by Artist Barbara Doherty (MidnightZodiac Leather)
Leather mask wet molded in 5/6 oz medium weight tooling leather.

Painted in a iridescent rainbow-oilslick effect. Lots of indigo, violet and blue with a center of coppery-fuchsia. Satin finish is the look of the paint itself...there is no further surface coating of gloss or matte sealer. The colors are vivid even in low light.

Ears are designed separately and gathered and hand stitched into shape then appliqued onto mask.

Interior is painted prior to molding with soft, flexible non flaking fabric paint to ensure a satin smooth surface against skin. Also protects the mask and gives extra stability to the shape.

All knots on inside are neatly covered with leather patches.

Sturdy elastic ties....put mask on...secure with a square knot...then gently tug from the part closest to the mask, then the tails...this sets the knot to stay in place of best fit. then you can remove and replace the mask without having to re-tie the knot. I have found this soft elastic rubber cord is very comfortable, strong and dependable. Just make sure to set the knot with some tugging to tighten it in place. It seems thin but is also very easy to pick apart to un-do the knot. The holes are easy enough to re-thread with another strap material if you so choose.
