“Abuelita” is a one of a kind sugar skull mask, created as a joyful celebration of Dia de los Muertos. The leather was hand cut, carved, tooled and painted with a rose and marigold motif. The base color is a distressed white with washes of reddish brown, and the floral design incorporates hues of scarlet, brick, burgundy, mustard, goldenrod, burnt orange, forest green and pale green. Her face sparkles with vintage Swarovski crystal and old german glass stones from my collection. Her headdress is comprised of sculpted leather roses, old lace, and two gorgeously handcrafted organza flowers made by Julie of Mermaiden Creations.
She measures about 8.5″ high by 10″ wide, and she fastens with gorgeous and durable stretch lace straps. The size is well suited for an average adult face.
