This was a custom order from one of my Etsy customers. He is going to Mardi Gras this year and wanted a koi mask. He was unsure about the original colors since they had a strong feminine feel so I switched up the colors more and added more irregularities to the splotches.
So this is my "man" koi mask. I used thinned, rich gold paint instead of the interference paint from the first koi mask. When I did, the koi seemed to be set on fire hence the name!
Made from sturdy 6 oz veg tanned leather, hand carved and sculpted, painted with acrylic paint and sealed with acrylic finishing spray.
