  1. Painting fine details? Help!

    One question I have, is what TYPE of brushes are you using? Different brushes are designed for different types of paint. Are the bristles soft and pliable, or are they stiff and hold their shape? For acrylic paint, you want a stiffer brush to hold up to the thicker paint. Using too soft a brush will make for sloppy lines and poor control.
  2. Taking care of your hands

    Personally, I either wrap my finger with this stuff http://www.leevalley.com/en/Wood/page.aspx?p=31213&cat=1,42207 or I use a pair of leather driving gloves that I cut the fingertips off of.

    For beer enthusiasts, a drink holster always seems to go over well
  4. Field Notes Notebooks/Journal Covers

    I third the spatter-esque dye job inquiry. It looks fantastic
  5. Stumbled on this while browsing Aliexpress. Anyone have any experience with these or similar presses? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/ZONESUN26x12cm-Double-Wheel-Hand-leather-cutting-machine-photo-paper-PVC-EVA-sheet-mold-cutter-leather-Die/32862462419.html?spm=2114.12010108.1000013.2.7a8d6cd2LIcTGm&gps-id=pcDetailBottomMoreThisSeller&scm=1007.13339.99734.0&scm_id=1007.13339.99734.0&scm-url=1007.13339.99734.0&pvid=77aa26ad-5a96-480a-91c9-d8b7ef6b40fb

    Is it on a seam, or in the leather itself?

  10. Crossroads Cuff

    As a matter of fact... it IS a voodoo symbol
  11. Drawing flowers, leaves, scrolls etc.

    I second this. Look in the art section, not the leather section. There's a plethora of art books out there on how to draw flora.
  12. Sewing fur away from the edge

    I'm trying to figure out how you mean to put it together. Do you intend to make the pouch out of part of the skin and attach the legs and tail separately? Or have it all one piece and leave the legs and tail as a flap on the bottom hanging below the stitch line?
  13. Stitching a circle end of a duffle bag

    The way I've found works best for me, is to mark your stitching holes on what is going to be the exterior before gluing the pieces together, and then use an awl to punch all the way through the two pieces.
