  3. Some Tips On How To Use Antique

    I agree totally - If I'm using Super Sheen 2 coats work much better and then let it it over night... Also, if I use a damp paper towel to wipe it off, I fold the towel many times, * I have a firmer piece of flat towel to work with, which will leave more antique in the low spots, and you can also unfold and refold the towel to use up the other cleaner areas of the towel. Hi kkikoss This is some Antiquing info I got from Raymond Tipton of duckcreektraders and this is just some ideas to try, on your journey of learning leatherworking..... A lot of leatherworking is trial and error, and just finding what works for you - it is not always an exact science. Something to do is try doing what he says, on a small sample of leather - just to see how it turns out. Then next time while you are doing this, feel free to make changes or do things differently if you like how it looks. If I understand your question, it is about the 3rd picture where it says “I use the Feibings Antique with Tan-Kote at about a 50/50 mix? * This is to dilute the Antique - which will make it last longer. ** When I use Feibings Antique I use a separate jar to dilute my antique – one for each different color of Antique. *** Then when I am done with the leather dying/antiquing I put a cote or two of finish on. I hope this answers your question… ?

  6. I like your plain wallet and your stitching is grreat. I'm sure he will love that and use it well... I prefer the color of plain aged &/or sun tanned leather!

  10. Would Like To Make A Border Similar To This Any Ideas

    I know this is an old post, but periodically I look for stamps I don't have but Want... I also know this is not the same as the original poster's pic, but it was mentioned that maybe it was a Ram's Curl I thought I'd post a pic of the Ram's Curl stamped on leather. (pic is a close up from a holster by MattW here at LW.net) Hopefully I will find the stamp before I am too old to use it.... heheheh

  13. My New iphone case

    From the album Lazy N Leather

    Aaarg - I dropped my blackberry (I had it for 6 years & it worked like new - when I drove out someone pulled in and parked right on it) Hence - new iphone needed a new case.

  14. Very Nice! I love your work Bob. I like the different backgrounding and how it is so even - that really shows off the knot work. I also really like the tooling on the spine and how that came out all so even... I think I"d probably goof that up. Nice piece, Really Nice Notebook!
