"Baltazar, the Burro" ~Sold~

Those of you that follow me on Facebook, have probably already seen this little guy, but I wanted to share him here too! My favorite feature on him is his colorful yarn tail. :)

I've been hard at work on custom orders, and I wanted to show the mask that I just completed. Teresa (one of my awesome collector's in the UK), told me that she wanted me to go crazy with color, so that's what I did! She's hosting a Halloween party, and wanted a 3/4 mask, so she could be heard easily when talking.

She also requested a simple, black and white mask for her husband, and I was kind of at a loss for what to do on it. No color, wha?! I discovered that it's actually really hard for me to not go crazy with color.
I really enjoy painting the DOTD masks, but I feel that the Etsy market has become so saturated with them, that I won't be offering them in my shop this year. That's okay, because I have a million other project ideas! ;)
