I've used dichroic glass with masks before, but never a glass piece this large and complex. They're actually kind of hard to find for an affordable price.

Addendum: Didn't mean to be misleading. XD Only the center piece is dichroic glass. The rest of the mask I hand sculpted from a kind of resin.

so pretty, i love how the shape of a mermaid lends itself so well to a mask around the eye like that. plus the fiery red and cool turquoise look so stunning together, its a great combination. beautiful.

Nope! It's a kind of sculpting resin, is the best name I can come up with for it. Just the gem is glass. =D
