The Skin Trade
Grim Stitch Factory produces some incredibly creepy masks. Most of their work is burlap scarecrows, but they also produce a line of real skin masks that I thought were interesting. The skin in question is dried goatskin, the stuff normally used for drum heads.
What's really impressive is that they openly share their materials and techniques. That's something all too rare, and I'm happy there are so many artists that embrace that openness in our particular niche.
