Leather Cat Mask

This tutorial showed up in my email from Tandy Leather and decided to give it a try. Not bad for my first mask. Will be making some of my own design soon.

I wet the leather before I cut it. Molded it on a styrofoam head and let it dry overnight.

5-6oz veg tan leather
Tan Waterstain Dye for body
Blk leather dye for around eyes
White Eco Flo for the highlights.

Wonderful project, and you look great in it! I really think you should be showing it off in Made On A Glowforge category. Mind if I move this post there?

It is early here and I am still waking up, trying to figure how they got the cat to wear a mask was the second and closer thought :tired_face: the first involved spray adhesive and very upset cats. Then I noticed the leather part and was thinking of a cat in canarywood. I have a lot of problems with focus when I first wake up.

Sure since it wasn’t Glowforge leather figured this would be the place to post it. Move it to wherever works. :slight_smile:

Well that is pretty funny. Love your imagination. No cats were harmed in the modeling of the mask.

Okay, done! By the way, it doesn’t have to be made from Proofgrade materials, it just needs to be made on a Glowforge.

Ok cool, will keep that in mind the next time. Thanks for the assist.

I don’t even buy dog snacks. Lack of imagination kept Gerber out of the African market for years as everyone else figured out that folks who were illiterate would judge what was inside from the photo on the outside.

well done!
