    Acrylic Paint on Leather

    One additional question since we are on the subject after the acrylic dries thoroughly what sealer is recommended. Super Sheen, Tan Kote, Atom Wax, Spray Leather Sheen?...

    Acrylic Paint on Leather

    Thanks for the information. Good to know. Think I will figure out a way to get a hold of some Angelus or maybe try some that Tandy has. I am about two hours away from the closest Tandy.

    Acrylic Paint on Leather

    So my question starts here. I am looking to paint, (not dye), some leather projects I am currently working on. From my research one of the best leather paints is Angelus acrylic. While I don't have an issue paying the money and ordering it my problem is this. I live in the midwest. It is currently 26 degrees outside. I do not have a local store that has "acrylic leather paint" I cannot order the Angelus and have it shipped as it will freeze and ruin it. I do have a Hobby Lobby within an hours drive so the question is, can I use Hobby Lobby "Master's Touch Acrylic Paint" on leather and can it then be sealed with something like super sheen? Is there a big difference between "Acrylic Paint" and "Angelus Acrylic Leather Paint" Hope someone out there can help me...

    New Cowboy 4500 - Need some help.

    So mine did look very similar. I just grabbed the bracket the chain is hooked to and pushed it down as hard as I could and it released and I was able to raise the foot up all the way now. Still not sure what it was stuck on but now that it is released I think I can adjust the chain a bit to get it up there. AWESOME! Thanks! Your last two pictures did it. Mine were not going down that far. Double and Triple checked it now and is smooth as silk. Thank You AGAIN!

    New Cowboy 4500 - Need some help.

    yes i have attached a picture. I have attached a picture. Currently the feet only go up to 1/2" and the thickness on the holster in 5/8" Can't figure out how to raise the feet assembly to at least 3/4" when I raise the arm.
  9. So I dove in head first and purchased my first sewing machine, a Cowboy 4500 with all the bells and whistles. Brought it home, set it up and was able to sew up a couple of projects I had on the bench without issue. That is until I needed to sew a single action gun holster I had recently finished. The previous projects, knife sheaths, and a couple of custom sunglass cases, were around 1/2" or less thick and ran under my presser/walking feet without issue when the arm was raised up. Well, the gun holster is significantly thicker and will not fit under the feet when the arm is raised up and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get it done. I you-tubed it last night 'til 3am this morning trying to find a video about it and nothing. I now can adjust tension, modify timing, mess with the bobbin, oil the thing, etc., etc. I just want the feet to raise higher when I lift the arm up so I can get the thicker projects I do underneath them to start sewing. Thought I was smarter than this but obviously not and now i am just damn frustrated. Anybody out there that could help me I sure would appreciate it. I did find the adjustment nut on the banana slot but that only lifted the center foot and not the outside ones. I need to the whole assembly higher.
