TEN YEARS!

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 3, 2016, 9:33 PM


Happy New Years!

It's hard to believe this is my tenth anniversary on dA, but its true. Thanks for all the Faves and positive comments over the years :)

To celebrate, I'm offering a free custom made masquerade mask to the individual that screen captures my 45,000 page view. You can choose either a paper mache/brocade mask design or veggie tanned leather/brocade mask design.

Just send me the capture.


~*~*~*~ UPCOMING EVENTS ~*~*~*~

None scheduled at this time.

CUSTOM ORDER INFORMATION: My available inventory of masks and other crafts can be found here: www.etsy.com/shop/DaraGallery, handmadeartists.com/shop/DaraG… and www.zibbet.com/daragallery If you can't find what you need at these locations contact me for custom work. 


Custom Order Price List*:

- Brocade, satin or brocade/satin masks with a paper mache base: $35-$45, dependent on the cost of the embellishments. Note: I can create a less expensive brocade mask for $22-24 each (paper mache or pressed paper base). It will not have a felt back, layered trims or a handmade fascinator. Contact me for a sample picture.

- Brocade or satin masks with a lightweight pressed paper base: $28-38, dependent on cost of embellishments.


- Mulberry paper/flower masks - paper mache and mulberry base, $35 - 37

- Handmade papier mache imp, goblin or bird/feather masks: $60-80 depending on complexity.


- Vegetable Tanned Split Leather Masks with lace, satin and/or brocade finish - $36 to 42

- Vegetable Tanned Tooling Leather Masks $43-55 

- Victorian Ornaments: $18, multiples - $17 each

Sanitizing Feathers


When researching the proper way to sanitize bird feathers I came upon a lot of information - some of it good, some of it not so good and some of it just plain confusing. I have summarized the most useful info here in a blog on the subject: daragallery.wordpress.com/2013…
