Melissa HoreDuplication and flipping a mask

I am creating a wrought iron looking border that will ultimately stock onto my footage and am in the process of tracing my image and making masks. Several elements in the image are repeating only in the opposite direction. I am wondering of it is possible to take a mask i have already drawn copy it and flip it so that i can save myself some time. Thanks so much.

It would probably be easier to flip the solid upon which the mask is drawn than it would be to flip the mask itself. Simply turn off the H&V dimension link for the Scale property, make the horizontal -100% and reposition as necessary.
