Hi,

I wanted to make a mask from some alligator/crocodile hide and I was hoping to wet form it around a form. Is this possible has anyone tried wet forming it?

Thank you

There was a video of that somewhere around here a couple years ago. Check this thread:

You'll need to cement and/or stitch the alligator to some veg tan in order to properly wet form it. If I'm making a holster with alligator on the outside, I use contact cement and stitching to attach the alligator and 6/7 oz or 8/9 oz veg tan (depending on the holster size and design) flesh to flesh, then wet form it as I normally would.
