  1. Tandy edge kote

    Its possible that I did just apply to much to fast. I'll give giardini a try as well. Thanks for your time and info.
  4. Tandy edge kote

    Hey everybody. I've been a leathersmith for some time now but just recently started using fiebings edge kote. I premade a.... LOT of belts for a show and just the day before noticed that the edge kote was cracking and in some cases flaking off! I burnished the edges and applied the kote with an edge tool and hung them to dry. I've never heard of anyone having this problem before. Did I just get a bad batch.? Not shaken well enough? I've seen some people say you have to melt the edges? Has anybody else had this problem? If so i would really love to know how to fix it.

  11. How To Search

    Hey guys and dolls. I haven't been on for a long time. How do I search for spacific posts. I'm looking for the hand of God rig tut I saw a few years back and am not sure how to look for it. Thanks in advance for any help. If I can ever be of any use let me know.
  12. Gold Leaf Shields

    I haven't done it myself yet but plan to, I traded a whip a while back for a book of gold leaf. If you look up 'GILDING' on YouTube there are a tone of videos on how other people do it. Good luck.
  13. Leather Clad Pipe

    If I were going to try it I think I would go for 1 - 2oz leather and probably super fine thread with at least 6 or 7 stiches per inch. Pics would be great when you get done too. Oh, and you'll probably want to lightly case the leather while its being stiched so it'll streach around the pipe and not let the thread tear through the leather.
  14. Dragon Scales

    I used craft tool #f941 for this and just followed the body direction.
  15. How Do I.... Flatten Leather To Make It Workable?

    I like to case the entire thing and lay it on a flat surface until it dries. You'll have to put some books in plastic wrap along the edges to keep them from curling too. Tacking it down sounds like it would be a lot faster though. : )
