Leather mask

I have now finished my leather mask, (I love making these!) I need about a week to make one as the drying out can take a day or two, can't be rushed. I have gently shaped it around my styro head and then painted the leather black and decorated with three metal studs.
I could use leather dye but it appears that dyes fades quite quickly so I prefer to work the paint into the front side leaving the back natural.
 The edges have tints of pewter colour and it ties with long black ribbon.
 It is comfortable to wear, lightweight and 1.2 - 1.6 mm in thickness.
Fabulous fancy dress costume accessory
