Steampunk Plague Doctor Mask by Namingway Steampunk Plague Doctor Mask by Namingway
I realize that plague doctors are more of a Renaissance/medieval thing, but the motif has continued up through the ages through Carnival...including during the 19th century. So here's a steampunk version! This mask was entirely hand sculpted and painted. A figure of Death with a scythe flanks each cheek, and a skeletal raven or crow is emblazoned on the forehead. Bot h the bird and the 'glasses' have a clockwork motif. This mask is about 9 inches from forehead to chin and 6 inches wide.

This mask has sold, but I do accept commissions if you want something similar.

How did you make this mask? I really want to learn how to make these, but I can't really find any methods through Google.

Both steampunk and plague doctor at once...Could there be a finer combination?

The original sold for $250, plus shipping. If you are interested, I could do something similar for the same price.
