Our Process In Action 
We start class by sketching out our designs on paper, then making a paper mock-up of the design. After cutting out the rough shape, we do a first fitting to make sure the eyes are in the right place. The leather is soaked, and a lot of shaping and moulding happens. To set the shape and secure the fit to your face, we employ a good old hair dryer. Then we move on to painting! Depending on what works best for your design, you give your mask a white base coat to paint over with regular acryllic paints, or use special leather dyes or shoe wax to achieve the desired effects. After adding any last details, like wires or decoration, we fix the elastic and your mask is ready to go home with you!
