Greetings and Salutations My Fellow Deviants,

My name is Nathan Rodriguez and I am a Leather Artisan. I craft just about anything out of leather, however my primary focus is on masks and armor. I have been working with the medium for over 2 years now and I only want to go further with my craft. I do occasionally take on commissions, if there is something you would like send me a message either here or preferably at my etsy shop at epicleather.etsy.com

Thank you for stopping by,
-Nathan

Thanks, I'm not sure exactly what you are asking but I mold everything by hand and I use mostly only leather.

Thanks for the reply. I was trying to ask the following: How do you fix the form after molding? Do you use glue, varnish/laсquer or wax? What kind of paint do you use - acrylic or other?

Neither, its a variant on the cuir bouilli technique used for armor crafting that hardens the leather: Water and heat.  I use a leather dye for most of my masks, on occasion a leather acrylic, normal acrylics will crack and peel.
