  1. PFLeatherGlass

    Has anybody seen PFLeatherGlass’s work on etsy? I mean, is it real? Been leatherworking for years and will always look up to these wallets. I’m cluless to how someone can have such a clean dye job and such a strong black. Is there classes anywhere that can teach how to dye so good?
  2. I did do that. Just wondering if someone has more experience with it that may have so advice on large items. The small piece I did worked o.k. Not good enough for the risk. I will have to try to maybe melt the beeswax and mix it with some lanolin or mink oil.
  3. Designer leather

    So, went into Tandy and notice a huge sale on leather sides. Most had a sticker that said “designer leather.” For the price, it would be insane not to make good cash off some projects. Question is, the back looked like this. It almost looks woven. Is it real?
  4. Anybody use beeswax as a blocking agent, instead of acrylic, for antiquing? I did a small sample on a small piece of leather and it worked. I’m pretty scared to do it on a big piece though.
  5. Filigree moisture

    Thank you
  6. Filigree moisture

    Do you cut the filligree out while the leather is still moist? I had tried to cut the filligree when it dried and you can imagine how hard the compressed tooled leather was to cut out. Also, how do you get rid of all the fuzz? Is that mostly from cutting it dry?
  7. Thread size

    Thank you. I will just have to stitch a few together and give it a pull test.
  8. Thread size

    Do you know what # the generic extra strong thread is, found at Walmarts? It says its used for coats and denim.
  9. Thread size

    Normally I hand stitched every bit of my wallets. I realize not everyone can afford the time spent and I am concidering stitching the inserts with my old singer machine. What is the best size thread to use for the inserts? Not sure what size this antique will hold, currently have the Extra Strong for coats inside it. Yes, the stuff bought at every fabric store. Will this be ok for wallet inserts, or is a bonded 69 better? Advice and recomendations please.
  10. Machine sewing braided thread

    Is there a conversion chart that would convert the mm to the thread #? I want to compair the Ritza sizes with the current threads e.g. #346. Thank you!!
  11. Thread size

    It says #69 inside the spool. So that might be the pound rather than thread number? Just seems like a thick 69
  12. Thread size

    I recieved a thread size (bonded nylon) 69 and I also have a 207, the thread sizes look the same as I match them up. Are the differences too small to tell by eye, or is there something else going on?
  13. Die cut

    Anybody know of a place I can get the inside wallet pockets cut? Will save me a ton of time if I can have the pieces cut for me. Preferably Asheville, NC area.

    Since oil floats, I will have to see if fiebings will work mixed with some oil. Did you mix it when you tried feibings?
