I have been desperate to try making a leather mask, so was happy to find some suitable leather and have a go. The leather was really thick and very hard to cut but I managed it and set to work.
I started with this piece of 5mm leather.......... used a hand drawn template and cut out my design.
And after all my hard work and nearly slicing off my one of my fingers I ended up with this mask!
I am very happy to say that this mask has SOLD! :)
My next project is a white mask and I will call it "Snow Queen"!
I have the base ready and have painted it white with a slight shimmer, I also have lots of ribbons and embellishments ready to decorate it.
Step by step pics will be added so you can follow my progress. :)
I had a big problem getting the type of spider I wanted, when I finally found it it arrived broken!
So..I had to start searching again, in the end I went for plastic spiders, six of them and glitzed them up a bit, I am quite pleased with the end result and this also means I can move on to my next creation!
