  1. HI Is it possible to buy this stamp and what price,I am in the UK.
  2. Yeah North Wales is a great place to live,out on the trike every opportunity I get round Snowdonia, Although I am origionaly from Cumbria up in the Lake District. Which again is beautiful country.
  3. As mentioned earlier in the topic,Mike I was given the picture and copied it He called it Predator as that is the name of the Mcc He is a member of.

  11. Brmax, Hi, thanks for your comments,Braiding comes good with practice my friend,each one I do gets better, The memory foam I used is a 1 inch thick memory foam mattress cover that I bought and cut up as I needed.I cut and shape using an electric carving knife. Lessyl Hi, again thanks for your comments, To finish the seat after colour I used an antiquing paste/polish,on with sponge and off with micro fibre cloth, I then applied 3 coats of Resoline diluted 50/50 allow to dry n buff,then 3 coats @ 70 /30 allow to dry n buff,and finished with 3 or 4 coats of neat resoline buffed up with microfibre cloth when dry. Obviously leather is never 100% w/proof but this makes it water repellant for showers etc, I advise clients to use a waterproofing balsam for general maintainance.
  12. Guy gave me a picture, I used it, He called it a "predator" not being a sci fi nerd ,I do not know, But thanks for your comment on the work..
