Making Leather Commedia Dell Arte mask - Tutorial and Demo

In case you ever wonder about why I take so long to complete some of these projects, I'm always working on something, even if I'm not blogging about it. I've been working on commissioned masks in the commedia style.  I'm not going to turn this into a maskmaking blog, but I did a tutorial series awhile back on making a miniature version of my favorite mask.

Maskmaker, Maskmaker, Make Me a Mask

Part One: Planning & Carving
Part Two: Carving & Completing the Matrix
Part Three: Prepping the Leather (Skivving Tutorial)
Part Four: Molding the Mask (Wetforming Leather)
Part Five: Finishing the mask

Now if you will please excuse me, I've miles to go before I sleep...


  1. I love masks, are you going to sell some eventually? I would be interested in what your designs you look to make.

  2. Sorry it took so long to respond; I've been out of town. This is a commission piece, one of a pair. If you're interested in commissioning a mask, I plan to have a page up soon.

    1. Hi,
      Is it possible to buy this ?
