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

There is nothing wrong with these wares I just need to downsize since I wont have much room to store wares while in transition. Most have been on display and I would rather sell them to a good home than to have them sit around collecting dust.

Thanks for looking.

-Nathan

Hi, I was just wondering why you don't put in coyote teeth into your masks any more? They were cool.

Hey there!
I absolutely llove your work
And I saw that you have crafted a Kaneki Mask from 東京喰種トーキョーグール.
I am currently in the process of trying to design my own to create one for my boyfriend since he's a big fan of the anime and loves the character.
Now, I've looked around the internet for help and picture processes for the mask and I just cannot find wht I'm looking for.
Do you think you could help me and explain how you created yours a bit?
It would be aboslutely wonderful if you did.
Thanks~ -Andii

Sure, I've got the materials listed on the description of the mask: 

Tokyo Ghoul Ken Kaneki Mask - Patch Version 2

I use a variation on the cuir bouilli (boiled leather) technique used to harden armor in the middle ages to mold it all by hand.

I like your work. I was looking at the armor especially the gauntlets. Have you ever done just elbow pads? I haven't see any before, make out of leather other then being attached to an arm piece.

Thank you!  I haven't ever made them just by themselves but I most certainly could. ^^
