  6. Hi all Recently been at a show, a gent stood watching me carve a collar from start to finish, took nearly an hour, asked lots of questions, and at the end asked for three commissions for his sons, belts, two are easy one i am really stuggling with.... He wants a fantasy belt with dragons etc on. My initial thoughts where scenes from lotr or hobbit but i have discovered i cannot draw dragons, that small, belt is 40mm wide belt with 5 mm border. Ideally i want one breathing fire as each scene is to be framed with simple designs to reduce the cost of the belt and keep it in budget. I have done usual searches, but either to fiddly detail or not enough, just wondering if you fellow leatherworkers could help! Here is something similar to what i need! Thank you Pip
  7. Well hello, everyone, it has been a wee while since i have been on. This is because i have had a few issues and moved house etc! This is not an advertisement But i felt i needed to correct a previous statement that i have made. Ihad previously had a really bad experience of using Tandy in the uk and been outspoken about it online as one does, BUT wednesday this week i travelled up to Tandy in Manchester initially to buy a few bits and met Alex and the staff there! My views have changed, they were helpful, polite, and knowledgable! I got to play with the tools before buying. I got some great deals and watched some of the wednesday circle working on projects in store, with a fantastic tutor giving advice on carving and lacing, i learned a lot. They made a real effort to help, but not pester, it was a very positive experience! I am really pleased with the experience and will definately go back soon! I speak how i find, and these guys have rekindled my faith in Tandy. Pip
