Leather Zanni Mask close to completion, needing the eyes and nostrils to be cut and the leather  to be coloured. I have been thinking that the very dark Italian masks don’t show well in the soft English light and thus lose the sculpture.I am  looking for a paler leather colour to enhance the form and character. Will experiment with tan.


Picture is of the  the wooden carving , the paper cast and the leather.

Some of the tools for this trade. Some old and some new.
