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 six 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

Greetings fellow deviants,

Due to life I have been absent from devart for a while but I have still been working and busy on making some new stuff which I will be uploading once I find time to take some decent pictures, including a completed Lord Momonga (Ainz Ooal Gown) from Overlord mask and a work in progress of Sith inspired Helmet based on Vader and Kylo Ren for my personal Sith Cosplay among other things.  We are still busy building a house but I still try to find time to fill orders and make some new stuff so while I may not be back on full time Ill be checking more regularly.  So Happy New Year and all that other stuff.

-Nathan

 I want to start making these kinds of thing but I want to know how you do it. You are a quite an amazing person to make these, thanks.- Foster

Thanks!  There are lots of tutorials online now a days for various methods of crafting leather wares.  I use a variation of the cuir bouilli technique that was used in Armor crafting that I developed after lots of trial and error (When I started there weren't any videos or tutorials available online).  I create my own patterns and hand mold everything individually. My main tools are primarily water, heat, a pencil, and a simple Hobby Knife (Xacto).  Best of luck to you!
