Hi ya,
I use really good expensive leather, unless I want to make a mask that looks battle scarred, in which case I'll head for the lower grade stuff that can have alot of character. I have a few different sources that I use since leather from different sources tends to have different molding characteristics...as you probably know, it can be a challenge! The sheen is from acrylic sealer, not sure which one I used for this mask I have a few that I use.

And what's the ounce you use? Really thin?

Hey there sorry for the long delay getting back to you, I don't check my deviantart messages that often...but, yes, I work thin, never heavier than six ounce, I don't even know how people make masks out of heavier leather than 6 ounce, they know something I don't :)
Anywhere between 3 and 6 ounce, it varies since hides vary so much. Sometimes I'll get a hide and know that it won't work for a certain style of mask, but will for others, depending on how it molds.
Cheers!
