Inktober 2016 Day 25 Hide And Seek by Ranasp
Inktober 2016 Day 25 Hide And Seek
A friend showed me a messed up anime called "Hide and Seek" where children in fox masks play hide and seek with Oni.  This does nothing to dissuade me from the notion that children are insane.

5 Rainbow Beads by Ranasp
5 Rainbow Beads
I couldn't find the clear red and the pink ended up cracking but I'm pretty happy with how consistent these guys turned out.  I'll probably redo the pink (and add in a red) and make a leather cord bracelet out of them.  These five were on the same mandrel.  Gotta say, doing multiple glass beads on the same mandrel out of recycled glass makes using nice stable 104 rods seem easy!

Took day 23's inktober and darkened it up to look like a block print.  I like both versions.

Inktober day 23, Pentel inkbrush on rag board.  It was interesting to see what textures I could make with the brush pen.

Yeah this is a cheap one, but hey it's ink! Decoration on a box that Halloween candy was sitting on.

Yes I know, I'm a neglectful DA'er.  Don't worry, other things have been neglected, not just you, DA.  Like my poor garden.  Even roped a friend into helping me, and we both ended up neglecting my garden together.  I did manage to score a metric fuckton of sugar snap peas out of it before the weeds, deer, and rabbits took over though.  Also got a bunch of lemon cucumbers, for some reason those suckers went apeshit.  Sadly my tomatoes were a bust, they really didn't like the mix of clay and woodchips that the plot consisted of.  Enough of that sorry bullshit though, because there's a reason for the neglect, and it's because I took over the framing business from my boss.  So now I'm the boss.  I'm not quite sure how I got into this position, but like all evil overlords, I'm not willingly letting it go, which means spending lots of time bossing the minions around.  Since I have no minions, I boss myself around.  It's a hard job, but someone's gotta do it.  

In related news, I got the store's basement and all its contents.  One of those contents was a Ben Pearson recurve Palomino bow from the 60's, of all things.  As it turns out, I know three separate chicks who have their own bows, so we've been spending time terrorizing my chickens by popping balloons next to their pen. (well, terrorizing everyone but Caramel.  She gives no fucks, and will sometimes stand near the fence to critique our shooting).  Out of necessity I made my own leather arm guard and finger tab, which I'll be posting because hey, at least it's something.

Hey, which vegetable do they get the leather from?

Not technically a vegetable, except in the concept of "vegetable matter", it's mostly oak tannins.

Thanks for the great tutorial on mask making! can you use faux leather? I work with some interior designers and I can get my hands on some faux leather samples. but real leather, I am not sure about. I do art on a budget, as in cheap as I can... free is better lol

Faux leather has the same properties as the other types of leather that's used for upholstery and so forth. Vegetable tanned leather is the only kind that will hold its shape after being wetted and dried, so sorry to say, nope the faux leather is a no go.

Thanks for the great tutorial on making leather masks! It was very informative. I have been making leather bracelets and other things for quite sometime but never really knew how to mold the leather and such. I want to make a long nosed style mask and was wondering if you had any pointers on how to shape the nose piece as it would be difficult to mold the features on your face as well as molding the nose at the same time.

Thanks! And again wonderful tutorial!

I'd look for something triangular and wedge shaped to use as a mold, if nothing else you could stack cardboard together, glue it, and cut it into the shape you want. The leather shouldn't be soaking wet when you're forming it, so the cardboard should last a few goes at least.
