  1. Raanta's mask was made by Pettri Karvinen who is the mask maker of a Finnish company called Wall Masks. He started about 15 years ago as a hobby and it grew from there to become one, if not the biggest mask maker in Finland with apparently 80% of the SM Liiga (Finnish Top League) goalies wearing them as well as a few playing in the KHL currently. I believe there are also a few other Finns in North America wearing them besides Raanta.

    The Painter is a gentleman named Joni "Bona" Hallikainen of Bona designs who also is based in Finland and has done quite a few masks for Finnish goalies. He has also done Keri Lehtonen's current mask.
