  1. David from W Gainsville, Fl , HELLO. and welcome this site, IT is an endless source for information and sharing ideas to better one's work, DO NOT hesitate asking a question you may get a 100 responses or just a few, use the search bars in the forums to find answers, Remember WE ALL stood where you are, so just take the first step or JUMP in head first and do it. All the questions you are going to ask have been probably asked and answered here and you might get directed to a previous post not because people don't want to answer but that post has most if not all your answers. SO get to work Congrats on the fostering and thanks for caring for the animals,WELL DONE,,, I have about 60-80 rescues stopped counting and my leather work helps add to the care cost for them. db
  2. My favorites are Fla. Alligator, wide range of textures patterns and finishes nicely as well as edges cleanly, Elephant is as versatile requires more edge detailing and work but a wealth of variation, from the hides flank pieces, deep texture , and areas closer to legs offer different pattern, trunk offers small deep texture and patterns inner and outer ear vary to each end of the spectrum, Ostrich is great but edging requires more time and detail IMHO,,Shark is supple and is a joy to work, edges beautifully. ostrich leg also is easy to edge and inlay, Buff works like leather from what I've used, Snake is temperamental, scales scale direction but edges well,,Stingray is sometimes a battle best for Inlays my thoughts,,,Those are most common we see
