Just a quick reminder for you all that we have a Facebook group now!  I'm seeing a lot of people asking to join, but nobody has Noted me here telling me what their real name is.

I will not be adding anyone without first receiving their real name via Note from their deviantART username!  Please be aware!

The Group is a Closed one that is meant for private discussion between our Members here.:nod:  See you there, hopefully!  We've already had some great discussion that would make it really worth your while to join, if you're also on FB!

Hi all, I just wanted to ask a question about finishes. I've been playing around with matte, satin, etc, etc and different brands of varnish for a while - I was wondering what you use as the finish on your mask and why? Is there a finish you know of that's truly waterproof? Just tapping into the knowledge of the group! Thanks :)

I'll post your question in our journal this weekend, but you may also want to ask it at the new Facebook group I started for this Group, as well.  You might get a few more immediate responses!

You can find the FB group here:
www.facebook.com/groups/leathe…

Just be sure to note the group here on dA your FB username so we know who to approve. It is going to be LeatherMaskArt members only allowed there.

Another question about selling at a festival. I am allotted one table at a student art sale on campus, so there's not exactly a lot of room. I also wanted to share the table with my watercolors and pyrography work. But how many masks should I bring/make to sell? - Sorry for all the questions. Thank you! :)

My personal opinion is that you should take the work that meshes well with your masks.  If you can have a consistent look/theme across your art and masks, I think that puts across a more professional appearance for your prospective customers.  Try to have vertical displays for as much as you can, as well.  They tend to catch people's eye more than laying your 2d work flat on the table.  A styrofoam head for at least one of your masks is helpful as well!  You can generally find them at wig or beauty supply shops.

If it helps, I've done a few display tutorials that might help.
