  1. Old World Wedding Decanter

    Another way to make the pattern is to wrap the bottle in a layer of plastic, then a couple layers of masking tape. Then cut it off and divide into the desired number of panels
  2. To go back to the original topic, I really like Serge Volken https://www.youtube.com/user/TheBigy52
  3. 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.

    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.

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

    As a matter of fact... it IS a voodoo symbol
  13. 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.
