  •  The masks are usually one piece of leather - (2+ / 0-)

    For the goblin, I used 2-3 oz leather, and cut the inside of the mouth to include the teeth.  Then I folded the piece together, so the teeth would look like they were behind the lips.

    Leather stain makes the leather too hard for a mask.  I use acrylic paint, and seal the outside with clear shellac.

    The Tara mask looks like a good candidate for paper-mache.  You can actually do one on a balloon - it's fun and easy.

    I'd rather be called a dirty fucking hippy for reading books then to stand on the side that throws books in the garbage. - MinistryofTruth
