Interested in commissioning a handmade mask or leather item? Look no further!
Quick question: What is the estimated cost of all the tools necessary to create such masks? That is, not including any actual leather, but just the tools, like in the ultimate toolkit which you have.
I made my first masks with nothing but a barebones 'tooling' set (comes with a swivel knife and basic stamps), a modeling spoon, a ballpoint pen (for tracing patterns), printer paper ( for printing patterns), and a heavy duty utility blade. Altogether with a 40% off coupon from Hobby Lobby these things cost around $50.
I accrued the rest of my tools over time buying them used from eBay and eventually using prize money from winning a Tandy contest to buy the 'ultimate' set. This came with a lot of tools I'll never use on masks, however.
