It Happened Again!

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 30, 2014, 7:58 AM


Hi Everyone and Happy Almost New Year!

Well, DaraGallery didn't win On Fire For Handmade's last reader poll for your favorite red & gold craft. I did come in a *healthy* second, so thanks to everyone who voted.

Now it appears I've been nominated again - which is flattering as I had nothing to do with it.

Please, if you have a moment, vote for my gold mask.

It's easy. Just follow the link below, toggle on Dara Gallery, then hit "vote" at the bottom of the list.

Thanks and have a safe and happy New Year.

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…

Blue and Silver Brocade Couples Masks by DaraGallery
Blue and Silver Brocade Couples Masks
Satin brocade over paper mache.  

I like how these turned out and will be sure to use the design ans fabric again. Just as I was about to post them I had an inquiry for a royal blue mask, so they are reserved for someone for now.

Bright Gold Couples Masquerade Masks by DaraGallery
Bright Gold Couples Masquerade Masks
I got tired of using the same basic paper mache form, so I've cut a bunch into new shapes. Here's my second experiment - Matching masks with the female mask curving in then up at the center and a beaked nose.
