Carving of the wood matrix for ‘Capitano’Mask complete.
Waiting for time to do the next stage of the process, casting with leather.
Some experiments with small scale carving and casting in veg-tanned leather. Bas-relief carving and Intaglio. Next I shall try out various finishes. Learning by doing.
A detail of this work that I made in 2006
The Full LeatherHead
