robin-lila's Culinary art is interesting because no matter what she is making you know it will include colour, taste and delicious looking frosting!  What more could you want from a pastry artist?  Not much!
Here are some questions we asked robin-lila about her work.
Where do you think your taste for the culinary arts began?

Thanks for taking the time to check out the work, please let me know what you think.

All of our masks are hand formed leather.

Many are also for sale, please contact me if you have any questions.

Custom/commission work is available.

Our website www.2ndskinleather.com is up (bare bones at the moment)

I make the masks, but my lovely friend Vandy does all the paint and fine detail work. Even if I wasn’t colorblind I could never hope to do the amazing things she is capable of. Please check out her work here

Very nice leatherwork, i admire it. Out of curiosity, is leather a difficult medium to work with?
