Animal Heads by Gladys Paulus

No animals were harmed in the making of Gladys Paulus’ super-realistic creature heads – they’re made from felt! Paulus handcrafts the masks for theatrical productions, photo shoots, and videos. She makes them out of felt, a naturally strong, breathable, and water-repellant material, and cuts discreet eye-holes to allow actors to peer through the mask.

Spoons by The Silver Duck
