There's going to be a lot of process photos, and not many completed masks, here, for a bit while I'm waiting for all my peripherals to arrive. The Chimera I had meant to give a mane of copper scrubbies, but that just didn't look right. Now he's sitting on my bench with a feather mane, which is good, but the wrong colour, and so, I'll be ordering some feathers for him. Thank god for kickstarter, that's all i've got to say.
