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 nearly 4 years 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

I know it's not very creative but what do you think? pearl-shadow.deviantart.com/ar…

Actually it's designed quite well, that is probably how it would look if it would be created out of leather.  Good job with the rivet placement. ^_^

Can you humor me for a second? If you were to take commission for one of your mask, how much would you want for one?

It would depend on the complexity and materials needed to craft it, you can check out my wares at my etsy site (link in the signature) if you want a general estimation, but if you want something original or new commissioned we can work something out, just let me know.

Hey, Your work is amazing as I have probably told you before. I am dying to make some masks and was wondering if you would mind answering some questions for me? I literally do my work out of my living room and I am limited to some tools and supplies at time. I was just wondering what weight of leather do you use for your masks (which are amazing btw..)? and what do you use to mold it on to fit a human face?

Thanks!  It depends on the mask but I have them listed on the deviations.  The Black is 5oz Oiled Leather and the Veg Tan (Hardened portions) vary from 3-16 oz, typically the 7-9 oz for most of my masks. I still pretty much only use a craft knife (xacto type blade), punch, paper, and pencil as my main tools.  As for the molding its all done by hand and I use my own face as the template.  I tried to use a head and mold in the past but it was just redundant work since I still needed to tweak it to make it fit comfortably, so I just cut out the middle man as it were.  My face and hands are now more resistant to heat because of it, ironically I'm probably turning my own skin more leather like as a result lol.

Thanks for the info, pretty much what I have to work with myself. I know what you mean when it comes to the hands though, mine might as well be leather too lollol.
