Diatom was designed by Cecilia Swatton, and is accompanied in its release by her Chandelier mask.

Cecilia says, "Natural beauty greets us in many forms, including fan-shapes. One natural fan-shape exists in microalgae that form amazingly intricate patterns. The variety that I chose in developing Diatom is Licmophora flabellate – a type of plankton sometimes called Seaweed Fringe since, among many watery locations, it can live as minuscule fringe on seaweed. To see its fan-like shapes, you need a microscope.
"Disregarding original inspirations, my art-making opens my eyes of imagination. The results? Fanciful abstract imagery and decoration.
"Designed to be used with acrylic paints, these masks also work beautifully for making dry rubbings with soft-tipped color pencils or kids’ crayons, or for embossing color-laminated foils.
"To see ways that I’ve used these two brand-new masks, please check my blog."
