|Mask Information ~ Gift Certificates ~ Ordering & Payment|
Each leather mask made by Tiger is hand-molded vegetable tanned leather; dyed, sealed, painted, and finished with a final clear coat. Acrylic paints and sealers are used.The masks are signed and dated with the year on the inside of the mask by Tiger. There are also the numbered series of Jnani & Prachika masks.
Tiger makes both patterned pieces, meaning a repeatable pattern she has designed; and unpatterned pieces, meaning completely free form and flowing out of the shape of the leather itself. The patterned masks are still unique from piece to piece, depending on the leather, finish, and exact details. Most patterned pieces can be customized.
|The masks, unless noted or
ordered otherwise, are held on by black corded elastic. The elastic
knots on the front of each are finished to match the mask, and blend in
The elastics are guaranteed. If they should become brittle, stretched, or unattached, Tiger will replace them, and paint the new elastic to match the mask. Other repairs on your mask, should the finish become damaged, can be handled on a case by case basis.
The masks are rather enduring, and somewhat malleable; they can be slightly altered to improve fit. The more they are worn, the more comfortable they become.
CAN work under and over GLASSES. Never say again that you can’t wear
masks because of your glasses. Many of the pre-made masks can be fitted
glasses over them.
Though the masks are generally one "size" fits all, custom fittings ensure a comfortable fit, as well as a feeling of participation in the final product. Custom fitting must be done in person, and takes anywhere from 1-2 hours, depending on the details of the mask.
Display or store your mask in a dry place; excess moisture could be
harmful. Mask hangers are available in silver and brass, at $2 each,
for display of your mask
on the wall.
recommend that you hang your mask with a hanger, and not by its
Cleaning: Carefully wipe your piece with a slightly damp cloth and let air dry completely. You can also use a soft bristle brush to brush away dust in the nooks and crannies if needed!

Statement : I *am* Tiger Torre Art. I am the mask maker,
web designer, PR department,
shipping manager, and proprietor. With the exception of good friends who help me at conventions and faires, I'm the sales lady.
I am the only person reading the e-mails, taking, filling, and shipping orders. While I have awesome apprentices who help with
cutting and carving leather, I am the one who molds the masks, paints and hand finishes every single piece that bears my name.
I finally started to get some help with the back end website stuff after 17 years of doing it myself, because there's only so much I can do!
I don't have backers or rich patrons. I have no advertising budget. With this in mind, I thank you for your business.
I thank you for treating me with respect and paying me in a timely fashion. And most of all, I thank you in advance
for telling people about Tiger Torre Art. Word of mouth promotion from happy customers is my best asset.
The more sales I have, the further away from being a starving artist I am.
