Tooling is a fun option to have for leather, as it gives me the ability to make something physically three dimensional, and with the addition of paint it truly creates a stunning finished piece.
The mask can also be painted and have shading to create the illusion of the three dimensional look. This is the less expensive route, and provides quite a good illusion to the fact.
It will be a work of art no matter the choice when you get a mask from Red Stick Studio, fear not the choice you make. I strive to have each item look unique and beautiful, to the customer's specifications each and every time.
I have had clients give me an idea they'd like portrayed, but have no idea how to make it a reality. This is a specialty of mine, bringing concepts to reality, and having a finished product that makes my customers happy.
