Leather is an amazing material for creating wet-formed masks that you can wear. You use vegetable-tanned leather, dampened to become soft enough to work with. Then using a variety of face forms, that will be supplied for your use, you will drape the leather over a form and begin to mold and shape it into the desired mask design. Eye openings are then set and cut out and your creation will be heat dried. Once dry enough but still pliable, the surface can be decorated with acrylic paints, sequins, feathers and even sparkle powders. Your mask will have a design, truly unique to you.
