Leather Mask Making Tutorial by Ranasp Leather Mask Making Tutorial by Ranasp
This has been a while in the making, I hope that it answers most of your questions if you want to try making a mask of your own.

I took the pictures with the aid of my boyfriend and wrote the text, while did all of the layout, I couldn't have made this tutorial without her, thanks so much!

Where did you get the leather? I live in Hawaii and have no idea where to get good amounts of it, except online I guess.

I live near a Tandy Leather Factory so I can just drive down to get more leather, but you can look for online stores or buy off of ebay.  You could also try your local craigslist to see if anyone local is selling vegetable tanned leather.

Do so!  Even if you go with a simple domino mask for your first one it looks so much more polished if you shape it like in the tutorial and ends up looking quite impressive.

It's a very good tutorial, by the way, makes the whole process seem a lot less intimidating. :nod:

It really is one of those things that has a simple foundation but refining it is the challenge.

what kind of paints did you use on this?

Actually, they're leather dyes, which are shown in Step 2.

Heyo, I'm looking to make a clown nose (note the profile pic) and am questioning how to precut leather so it will form the shape of a ball..i.e., how does a clown nose translate to 2D? Or does it not really matter, when the leather is wet and you cut after the fact? Any suggestions? Thanks! Nice work, btw!
