Sakura Quilling IV by GwynConawayArt Sakura Quilling IV by GwynConawayArt
I've never seen another artisan make a functional quilling mask, and truly the hours of research and crafting was a huge undertaking!

There are five species of cherry blossom represented with dew in swarovski crystals. The mask is so fine and thin that instead of ties, it's adhered to the face with spirit gum.

I'm very proud of making my quilling masks, and I think so far that this is the height of my work. : )

Photography by :iconfiverings: Tim Vo
Modeling by Sunshine Okano
In collaboration with Geneva Conaway-Bennison


:star: This mask is for sale: [link] :star:

Definitely. I once saw pictures of quilling online and I thought the pieces I found were amazing. I have only really done some small pieces, but I've always wanted to do more. I think joining your quilling group would be fun and exciting. I will certainly take at the link you provided. Thanks again! And I can't wait to see what you do next. =D

The challenge with making anything to be worn with paper quiling is durability... I think for a mask this is exquisite. It's very pretty. I love the sweeping feal of the "branches", clever use of the space for the eye.
