That's a great first try mask. That would be a great 10th try mask. I like really shiny leather so I would tend to polish it up, but it's already got a respectable shine so that's just personal preference. I might look into an airbrush. Everyone doing masks seems to be using them to create those amazing gradient colors, fading from one to another. It's something I've been thinking about doing but it really looks like you've got it.

I met a guy at a convention doing masks and he used Gesso on the inside of his masks to protect them from sweat. Perhaps other people here can comment about that. I haven't tried it yet but I've got some old masks that are looking a little haggard on the inside.

Keep up the great work!
