Steampunk Trooper Mask by Epic-Leather Steampunk Trooper Mask by Epic-Leather
Leather Steampunk Trooper Motorcycle Mask

Inspired by the Steampunk Movement and Star Wars

This Original Riding Mask is hand crafted and molded from sturdy 8/9 oz Veg Tan Leather. The black leather behind the grill is softer 5oz Oiled Leather. The leather has been sealed to provide some water resistance. Lined on the inside is foam with suede leather wrapped around to provide comfort and protection during your ride, as well as an adjustable strap to fit to your face. Unlike many other masks, the strap is riveted into place with high quality 5 oz Leather and Buckle, so you don't have to worry about tying or undoing any knots. One size fits most and being as it is made from leather there is some flexibility.

Beautiful work, and I love the texture you achieved with the dye! I've been looking at getting into leatherwork for my own enjoyment, but am still in the "research" phase. If you don't mind me asking, could you walk us through your dyeing process?

Thank you very much! Not much of a process really, I use Wool Daubers or foam brushes with Leather Dyes, Acryilcs and Paints, for this one it is just dyes and wool. The trick is to saturate the wool and smoothly cover the whole leather piece in one go, it eliminates streaks.

I was thinking similarly the other day.. i am lucky enough to have a Tandy very close to me.. do you recommend anywhere else for leather working supplies?

Hmmm well I actually get a lot of my supplies form Tandy, occasionally Ill get some supplies on ebay or Hobby Lobby. Leather Unlimited (online shop) also has a good selection, their shipping takes a bit longer but they have things that Tandy does not. Until I got a membership for Tnady I got my leather from there.

Nice!
I like that it took me a second to see what it was. I think that's a very good blend/hommage when it's not blatantly THE SAME THING.

Bravo!

You better hurry and make a biker scout one before I find time to, lol.
Awesome job.

The upper part of the mask kinda looks like the mouth part of the storm trooper.

XD Thanks! Yeah Star Wars ftw. I wanted to do a gas mask looking mask at first, but as I started designing it, somehow it went towards a Stormtrooper design and said to myself, why the hell not? Im a nerd, this will rock! lol
