Primal Steam: Tengu by TormentedArtifacts Primal Steam: Tengu by TormentedArtifacts
Tap-tap-tap
Of cane or beak,
The sinister rap
As the doctor haunted the streets


Part plague-doctor in design, and part something else. This one marks a bit of a new style for me- unpainted masks. No they won't be replacing my standard work, but they do make for some fun pieces in addition to it.

Media: Leather, with brass hardware and woodburnt detailing.

Yes, this piece is available for private sale- if you're interested, just drop me a note

Brilliant. I'd be interested in buying one - what's the price?

It's $160- not including shipping. The original has sold, but there's been demand enough for me to do these on a commission basis. If you're still interested, send me a note, and we can talk over shipping rates and such.

What did you use as a foundation? To give the mask its shape, I mean.

I work on a glass head that's human-proportioned, usually. To shape the beak, it was just a matter of the riveted tension on the leather holding it upright. The beak and the face were each molded separately, and then attached together once dried.

This is just freakin' PERFECT!! Been a fan of the medieval doctors mask for ages, and don't think I've ever seen one so splendidly rugged before. The steam punk touch really does that for it, and it really works! Excellent job. *doths hat*

I haven't seen a leather one yet, and frankly I like how you molded it together and gave it that design. What exactly would it cost to get one of these? =P Because if I can save up the extra cash. I would like one. >8D

It'd be $150 (USD) plus shipping- drop me a note when you figure out the finances end of things, and we can go over what the actual shipping charge would be and such.

I'm interested, but that's not the kind of extra cash I can come up with easily. I'll see what I can do. I'll use it to tell my daughter scary stories in. 8D BAAAAHAHAHAAAA! I'm so terrible.

The leather is much darker than typical raw veg-tanned. Did you dye it a darker brown?
