Lion of the Wind mask by mostlymade Lion of the Wind mask by mostlymade
This is the first resin cast of this mask.
I opted for the red color scheme because I really like Indonesian masks and I see red/gold/black a lot and I think it looks sharp.
For now blanks are availible through my etsy shop here:

The suggester said: "The craftsmanship is clean and represents the spirit of the original shi shi style masks in a respective manner. The paint job is vibrant and does not hinder the overall form."

It sucks that you're blatantly cribbing another artist's work, and profiting from her business model.

 I hope you get sued.

The masks look completely different. I do see similarities, but it doesnt look like it was directly copied

its more then just the look, the diy masks and metallics mask production is too similar, I stand by my original opinion.

I understand and acknowledge your opinion. If I liked the way a metallic coloring looked on a mask, and I had the materials to make my own, I may paint it similar as well. Im sure that if it was a direct copy or something similar MissMonster would have contacted the user. Either way, like I said I do see similarities.

AMZAING mask. I'm trying to look into creating high quality/detailed masks do you have any suggested materials or links to good tutorials? I would highly appreciate it. Such as the casting process and what kind of paints work best. 

Thank you for your time.
