Philippine Eagle Mask
Philippine Eagles are a long favorite of mine. When I first saw this blank from Freakhound Studios I knew I had to make this species of eagle with it! Months of work later, here it is. The base has been gently modified/resculpted to better fit this raptor, and then finished with high quality paints, epoxy, faux fur, and feathers. The eyes are acrylic half spheres and are hand painted.
The jaw is fully articulated/hinged and operates very responsively with the wearer’s own jaw movements. There is a silicone tongue inside, made by Dreamvision Creations.
