Posts Tagged ‘vegetable tanned leather’

Remember all of those fairs I have been vending at? Well, I have accumulated a bit of new work that I haven’t had a chance to photograph and share with everyone due to the chaos of fair preparation. I still have lots on my plate, but now that two back-to-back events are done with, I have a moment to share with you some of my recent leather creations.


The leaf barrettes above have already sold out, but I do plan on making more. They are a fun new addition to my leather collections, perfect for summer and fall. By the time Connecticon rolls around, I should have several more back in stock.

A series of green masks with an iridescent shine. Another summery accessory.

This set is for the fairy princesses out there. Specifically sized to fit a young girl’s face, these brightly colored, ultra feminine masks also have an iridescent finish.

Here’s a bold statement. Metallic green, scalloped edges, and big gold studs draw attention to the eyes.

Last bunch for today, a series of blue iridescent masks in a variety of shapes and sizes. Everyone likes blue, so why not make a size to for everyone?

For those of you who like to do things yourself, I’ve got some new paint-you-own-leather-mask listings up on Etsy. Leather masks are surprisingly simple to make from vegetable tanned leather. However, if you only need one mask, its hardly worth the large investment of your time and money to track down a good piece of leather, draft a pattern, cut it out, punch holes, and wet form it, just so you can have a custom mask that may or may not turn out the way you like.

Instead, I’ve done the hard part for you with these masks by purchasing the leather in bulk, and completing all of the special tooling and prep-work which requires specialty equipment. All that’s left for you to do is design and decorate the mask of your dreams!

I have two styles of do-it-yourself masks available right now; the ever popular Super Villain Mask, and the stunning Sprite Mask. Both patterns were hand-drafted myself and are not available elsewhere. These masks are ready to paint! They readily accept acrylics, oil-paints, glue, glitter, varnishes, matte and gloss mediums, and just about anything else you can think of thanks to their smooth yet porous surface.

So what are you waiting for? Any design you can imagine is possible!
