Notes from the studio:
How we make our pieces:
All of the masks we create are meticulously hand sculpted, hand dyed / hand painted and hand finished. Often our masks also feature hand carved highlights as well. Each of our masks is an original design based on our inspirations, which include: fantasy, travelling to ancient ruins, history and mythology. The leather used is an ethically sourced tooling hide that wears nicely over time. All of the leather used to create our masks is vegetable tanned and is a byproduct of the food industry. The dyes used are an environmentally friendly water based dye which leaves a rich hand-finished touch on each mask bringing out the unique highlights, grains, and character of each piece of leather*. A number of our designs also include special stone, crystal, or glass cabochons in custom leather bezels stitched onto the piece. In addition to the cabochons some of our pieces feature hand beaded highlights to create further depth and beauty. Many of the masks also feature hand painting which is done with a variety of acrylic paints specially created for leather applications. All of our masks are hand dyed (black) on the inside and finished with a special non-toxic coating which can be wore directly against the skin and is easy to maintain. We use a variety of different, hand applied, finishes to both protect and emphasize the leathers natural beauty. Finishes may include, but are not limited to, any or all of the following depending on the piece: high quality oils, waxes, gums, lacquers and protective coats.
* Note: all colours will pick up the natural highlights and lowlights found in the leather. While these variations add a beautiful texture and character to each piece it does not give a solid colour like industrially dyed, heavily chemical dyed, leathers. Also each piece of leather, like wood, is different and has its own characteristics. These are not considered flaws.
