Steampunk Mask Blanks

Well, you can never have too much Steampunk--not if you're this possum, anyway! Our thoughts have turned to travel lately, from a standpoint of our favorite theme. To add to our selection of masks for your use this time (or anytime) of year, the obvious conclusion was to think in terms of travels abroad, especially by air. 
For what Steampunker would be without her or his own flash airship? One certainly must be able to gauge where one is headed if aloft, then. And to add to the experience, we began to explore antique maps online for more inspiration.
Not only that, but one of our marble paper colors, sepia to be exact, looked so right in with these two sets, it was almost a given it belonged.
You'll note how, once again, we are relying on a large scale sheet as printing surface, that of 11" by 17", or standard Ledger Size in U.S. terms. Most U.S. printers may handle almost any format no broader than 11", so most of our visitors will find it easily printable, given the correct sheets of paper.
We also recommend that these be backed by either a stronger paper such as a semi flexible card stock, or with fabric of a smooth texture and fine grain prior to threading string/ribbons/yarn/what have you through the holes at either temple.
The possibilities here strike me. One might add, perhaps,  paper cogs or rusty metal machine parts , watch parts, little bits of ephemera or music box parts, then maybe add a few details from our cogged gems set, all to make a unique display of one's own.
Anyway, you get the intent with your--
Happy Creativity!

These masks are never to be repackaged for sale
You may use them, for free, but you must never sell 
any of them for any reason. 
I have exclusive copyrights to their final design. 
The same applies to all of my party accessories.
It's simply the LAW (that is a link).
In other words, my pre-packaged work, my Steampunk party accessories included, is not for sale, and is never meant to be, and this carries over into the choices which you, 
my guests here at PPS, are allowed to make by law.
All of the party accessories took many, many hours of painstaking work, so I would like it if you would only share and attribute 
(with links, please, back to the source, which is right here), 
and never repackage for sale, any of my work.
While parts of my work still come from copyright free sources, some do come with Licenses to copy and use, 
but never to sell for any reason, in any way, shape or form. 
I may be free to use them, but would never abuse that privilege.
Plush Possum Studio will continue 
to uphold the copyrights of others.
Thank you for joining me in doing so.

OMG...I just noticed your header. How could I miss it?...it is wonderful...LOL

Plush Possum Studio said...

Mary Ann: Well thanks!!!! Poe's an icon begging to be fooled around with, much like our Mona Lisa, which we fooled around with for Steampunk Month. This was an irresistible chance to play around with our theme. Glad you like it too! One never knows how well such icon embellishing may be received, does one?.........

Rhissanna said...

These are just wonderful, masks demanding travel and intrigue and romance. And that first one, with the curve of the Eiffel Tower framing the eyes, very clever, very witty!

Plush Possum Studio said...

Rhissanna: Thanks, my friend! You know our tastes are similar when it comes to this genre. It makes it more fun, just knowing you are around.

Hi Rose
These are amazing and dare I say, unique as I have never come across such images.
Strangely enough I have a slightly phobia regarding masks but not in this case. They look such fun to alter that I must quickly download them.
Wishes and Thanks

Lynne: Masks are a method for combining a mystery with different looks, and so they are kind of scary, I admit. But we're so glad you could find some new enjoyment out of the masks we've included here!
Hope you get lots of fun out of each one you've chosen to download!
