I was doing some research on various ways to make arm band gauntlets when I ran across the method of
WET MOLDING LEATHER
Not sure how many of you already know about this craft style - though I did find THIS OLDER THREAD - but it occurred to me that it might be a cool alternative way to create some very cool costume parts - depending on what might be needed, of course.
Here are a couple of videos I found on the subject . . .
Leather Mask Making Intro - YouTube (first in a series of 4)
Tiger Torre Art on HGTV - YouTube
Making a leather mask - YouTube
Leather Mask Tutorial - YouTube
Leather Moulding --Part 1_Leather Manufacturing Techniques (Video) - YouTube
Just thought I'd start a resource/info discussion on the topic - in case anyone might be interested in employing this method for a particular project.
