  4. Trying my hand a some new techniques

    the skull is all leather.... It was a project that I did in a class the Jim Linnell taught in Eugene Oregon this summer..... Check out Jim's web site at as he has some great video classes there. The skull starts out as a filled embossed project like the Eagle Globe and Anchor and then is cut out and finished up with ground up leather..... hard to explain in a written response. To mold it and get the relief to make the item stand up is done with a marble and modeling spoon. The area on the back side is then filled with ground up leather and rubber cement to keep the shape. Check out Jim's site, any class you can take or video class you get is will worth every penny of the money that you spend. Also check out his elk tracks studio on face book to see what his students have done and where he is going to teach at. Bobby

  9. with an hour glass shaped stamp, can,t remember the name yes it is a set that Tandy sells with three size stamps..... the key is to really rotate the stamp as you use it in your fingers
  10. thanks for the comments.... it took awhile to do and was mostly off the cuff.... Had an idea but as I would get one part done the ideas changed. I am trying to come up with one now for the 1911 and some original pieces form the 1800's for the cowboy, cavalry, and civil war Thanks Bobby
  11. Here is one I have had on my mind and finally got the nerve to try it.....Do you show it as art or using piece?
