Autumn Changes Leather Leaf Head Piece by Arexandria Autumn Changes Leather Leaf Head Piece by Arexandria
This item is for sale!

The headdress consists of 5 medium leaves, 1 large leaf, and three tiny leaves.

Each leaf is hand cut, the small and tiny leaves are 4-5 oz leather and the large leaf is 8-10 oz leather. They are hand tooled as well. Each leaf is then water molded and let to dry. They have 3 base coats of black alcohol based dye to help in the stiffening process. They then have 2-3 base coats of Copper Acrylic leather paint dye to further help the stiffening. Then they are painted with several different layers of red, orange, and a buttercup yellow. The edges are then spot painted with a gold acrylic leather dye.

The medium leaves are 4-5 ozs and are 5 different colors to show different autumn leaf colors. They are then spot painted with antique copper, red, orange, buttercup, and metallic festive green. They are then edged with acrylic dye gold.

All of the chains and findings are gold colored findings to off set the copper. The hair clips on the back of the headdress are hand painted so the black base of the clip doesn't stand out so much against lighter colored hair.

The barrettes work very well with this wig, holding the headdress in place. Each of the leaves on the end of the chains are light weight and can be placed in different placed on the head for different effects to the look. Because the wig has a net head cover under the hair the barrettes held very well. For regular hair, an optional headband could be used and could be made to easily convert.

I do take custom orders. I also do individual barrettes which can be found on my Etsy website. Feel free to drop me a convo on either here or on etsy.
