How to get a Shiny Mask

The 'Shiny Mask' doesn't really exist in Sable. Instead, you need to read the descriptions of the masks you have currently. It's the Machinist Mask you want, as it has a 'polished surface'. Equip it and then climb up to the bird. There are some geysers nearby to help you do this.
