Cheshire Mask Progress 2 by MaskedMenoly Cheshire Mask Progress 2 by MaskedMenoly
Finally got to start working on my Cheshire Mask again.
Unfortunately, Gundammrw and I ran out of time to work on his vacuum form contraption so I opted to make my mask out of leather instead and it worked out quite well! Leather is a miraculous material!

So I basically used my plaster form I molded and lay the wet leather over it and worked it into the initial shape. I let it dry a bit and then used a pin tool to carve/indent all the lines and detail.

Next step is leather paint! I'm so excited for this costume!

It is veggie tan leather and it is molded over a plaster cast of the clay sculpt :) you can't mold it over the clay because you need a hard surface for the leather to mold to. Hope that helps!

It looks amazing! I made my Robin mask out of leather too using my life mask but it wasn't very in depth XD. This is awesome.
