  1. Aging.... blurry vision when tooling

    No, this is a standard set. I have astigmatism, so, of course, conventional spherical lenses do not provide 100% image clarity. But due to the design of this head binocular, I, if necessary, can use it with my glasses.
  2. Aging.... blurry vision when tooling

    I am 48 years old. The same situation 2 years ago: ( For fine work, instead of glasses I use this one. Illumination and a set of 5 lenses helps a lot.
  3. Help!

    Isopropyl spirit and a rag (or sponge) helped me in small areas. Spirit move the excess dye into the depth of the leather and softens the sharp color transitions. But in any case not to rub! And test the applicability of this for your dye in an inconspicuous area or on scrap.
  4. Tooled Wallet

    Very nice and clear carving and coloring.
  5. Ancient Greek Armor

    Serious work, Mike. Very impressive!
  6. Portrait of a Scottish gentleman

    Thank you for your compliments!
  7. WIP. Portrait of a Scottish gentleman

    In the end... With the help of a photo it is difficult to show the "volume" of the portrait. Made a little movie. LeatherPortrait_1.mp4
  8. Portrait of a Scottish gentleman

    I do not think that this work is so good.
  9. WIP. Portrait of a Scottish gentleman

    Thank you, Sheila! And about the unsuccessful role - I got the impression that almost all very good actors have a film that they are hardly proud of. But this does not detract from their remarkable acting talent in dozens of other films.
  10. WIP. Portrait of a Scottish gentleman

    Thank you! I am always glad to see YOUR comments on my work! PS. I also was somewhat shocked by picture.
  11. Portrait of a Scottish gentleman

    Thank you, @Rolandranch!
  12. Portrait of a Scottish gentleman

    Thank you, Sir! The hardest thing was in this work was to embosse an imitatation of skin structure on the leather. Seems to have succeeded done
  13. WIP. Portrait of a Scottish gentleman

    Finished. Polyurethane matt varnish is applied. If you compare this photo with the previous one, it is clearly seen how, due to the bas-relief, even a small change in the angle of view changes the picture.

    @battlemunky, forgive me for yesterday's brevity - we already had 1:30 in the night and eyes stuck together . Thank you for your high appreciation of my rather modest abilities.
