      Hello all, I’m currently working on a plague doctor mask for Halloween, and am working with real leather, so I thought it best to model a mockup beforehand and use said model to make templates to cut out on the leather. The model itself is (nearly) finished, but now I’m uncertain how to ‘unwrap’ the curved planes on the model into flat templates that can then be curved again into the prior shape. Of course, I could scale to 0 along an axis, or shrinkwrap the curved plane onto a flat one. But both methods would just squish the plane as opposed to un-curving it. Below are some screenshots for refrence.
