I've been a little quiet at this Artisan account of mine ever since I made the decision to focus more heavily on my illustration career.  I can't deny that I've really missed having crafting in my life after spending so much time away from it!

Thankfully, I was able to come up with a compromise to let me still collaborate with all of you creative folks while still keeping leathercrafting at a manageable level for me so it doesn't overtake my life. 

I am testing out taking extremely limited artisan commissions every few months.  I will open up only 10 slots for custom work during these limited slot occasions. 

You can also join my artisan mailing list to receive notice via e-mail of when I am opening up these limited slots.

Here's a reminder of the kind of work I can do:
Commission Info - Angelic-Artisan by Angelic-Artisan

If interested, please email me at angela (at) with your request.  Please note the following before making your request:

- I am not required to take your commission.  I will only be accepting requests which interest me.

- Clients who pay first will be slotted in first.  I work in order chronologically, #1 being the first, #2 being next, and so on and so forth.  Please bear this in mind when coming to me with a short deadline.

- I will charge extra for rush orders.

My current commission queue can be viewed at this web page.

Get your requests in now!  Halloween is just around the bend and good crafting takes time.;)



Angelic-Artisan's Profile Picture
Angela R. Sasser
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I transfer my love of painting fantasy art onto the canvas of leather.

Currently based in Atlanta, Georgia, I learned my trade from the tutorials of Andrea Masse-Tongetti (also known as Merimask). Andrea's techniques helped me to finally discover an outlet for my love of the symbolism and beauty of masks, which I had previously only explored via my writings and illustrations.

I have been crafting masks ever since that very first experiment in 2009. I work as a fantasy illustrator by day, where my love of Art Nouveau and Romantic art inspires my leather crafts.

My leather items are meticulously carved by hand, soaked in water, and baked in the oven to harden them. After hardening, I paint my items by hand, where I get to have the real fun of the entire process. For more info, see my FAQ.

You can watch videos of my process on YouTube:…

If you're curious about my illustration work, you can find it at AngelaSasser, while you can read my writings at AngelaSasser-story.

awesome work, cant help wondering what is the thickness of the leather you are using on your masks :)
Angelic-Artisan Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Generally around 8 oz. in thickness.  You should also check out my leather mask making video here on dA for the rest of my process:
