Silver Birch - Leather Mask by windfalcon Silver Birch - Leather Mask by windfalcon
In the same theme as my other leaf masks, this time a birch! The client wanted birch leaves with the distinguished white and black bark.

Hand-carved and shaped 7-oz leather, painted with acrylics. The attached leaf layers are 4-oz leather.

and what kind of paint do you use, like the brand i mean XD

I usually dye the leather (to stiffen it a bit more and give it an 'undercoat') and put a coat of Mod Podge to protect the acrylic paint from the dye beneath. I use regular artist acrylics - Liquitex, Golden, and Windsor and Newton.
