    Did you coat or treat the leather?
  2. Leather working tools assortment

    PM sent.
  3. Leather working tools assortment

    I'll buy the lot if it's available. Let me know.
  4. holiday gift ideas

    If you have access to their houses you can measure their belts when they're not looking, or call one and ask him to measure someone else's belt. Wallets, briefcases, purses, watch straps,, backpacks, laptop or tablet bags, xmas stockings, holsters, knife sheaths.
  5. Mixed Exotic Lot

    Sold. I'll take it.
  6. My new belt

    I really like the definition and contrast. What was your resist/antique/stain process?
  7. Treebark Giraffe & Wildebeest Bone & Black

    I'll take the wildebeest and giraffe.
  8. Black leather with tan marks

    I'm thinking you'd be able to develop a recipe through practice. Take a piece of the leather, dye it black, then throw it down the driveway, scuff it up, bend it, scrape it, and see how much you like it. I've used this on scuffed, faded boots: and it the finish looked perfect until they got scuffed again, and then it wore off, probably more easily than you want, but it could be layered on top of another dye as something that would come off of high wear areas easily.
  9. Wet molding experiment

    If you knew what was inside, you definitely wouldn't sleep. That's just ripe to make a bra out of, with or without the star shape around it.
  10. I believe pull up leather is designed to mark easily so it will develop a patina and character from being used. Once there are enough marks they won't stand out so much. I don't think there's any to prevent that with this kind of leather.
  11. Tandy Outlet /exotics

    I know this thread is old, but since it's still on page 1 and Tandy Outlet still sells the same bags of remnants, someone might still see it. I bought a bag of gator remnants from Tandy Outlet. It was about a gallon size ziploc. Pieces were mostly black and brown with some white and pink. The leather was very thin. Pieces were big enough for watch straps, but none big enough for even one half of a wallet.
  12. Recent Builds

    Great looking holsters! How is the bottom closed? Is it one piece of leather folded in half at the muzzle?

    Where's your sense of adventure?
  14. What did you learn about the best ways to put them together? Anything you can share could help everybody else considering using them.
  15. Stingray would be much tougher for sure. We'll see how the alligator holds up over time, and how it looks as it wears, but I do love the way it looks.
