  1. storing oils/dyes/paint

    so, curious on how all of you store your paints/oils & dyes. I have mine just in a bag as I have no shelf room to store them on. but this causes some of them to tip over and leak at times even with the lids being on tight when the bag is not full. share your pictures of your storage.
  2. steps for finishing

    ok, so I am working on a commission, I have already tooled the design, and am about to place my order for some Angelus paint. I am wondering what steps to finish this will be, as I am wanting to use some gel antique, and the angelus paint. Do I apply the paint first? do I put the antique on first? anything I should also do in between? I have never painted leather before, only dyed, so any helpful steps are most welcome.
  3. Snap Setting Issues

    I have the same problem with the smaller sized ones, and as long you don't care if they are rounded, the only way I can get them to set and be straight is by using pliers. just go slow with it when you do. works out every time for me.
  4. waxed thread Vs. Sinew

    I am curious on everyone's opinions on the difference between waxed thread and artificial sinew. I personally use waxed thread, but i do believe that Sinew adds some character to some projects. I have only used sinew once, and I loved the way it looked, but I have not used it since. what are the benefits of both in your opinion? what are the cons of both?
  5. Efficient Shop Layouts

    you should check out youtube, there are a lot of videos on leather shops, they show you around and how they set them up
  6. Tricycle Restoration? (my second project)

    That is an awesome job
  7. spelling help

    I am usually pretty good at this kind of thing, however I am having a hard time figuring out which one of the following is the correct spelling. Is it: A: Leatherworks B: Leather works or C: Leather-works Thank you for your help.
  8. awesome design, even though the paint wont last as long as the holster, will still be sporty for the rest of your life.
  9. Stamp makers

    Thanks, but do you have a link to his etsy shop?
  10. Stamp makers

    I have been doing leather working for roughly a year now, and have had a few commissions, and I have a few in line now. I have already had my logo created by a professional artist, with the intent of having it made into a makers stamp. So far, my research is limited as I do not have hardly any access to the internet unless I am at the office. I tried Buckeye, and they have not responded back after some more details on what I want. I found a local shop that I visited this morning and the price he gave me (also while telling me they may not be able to get as much detail as I would like) a price that about gave me a heart attack.... $265. I am looking for a recommendation on a company to get my logo, which is my icon here...created. Appreciate any and all help.
  11. Viking raiders WIP

    Hey, that is looking great. I look forward to seeing it complete and in use.
  12. Makers mark stamp

    How much did they charge you for your stamps?
  13. Coffee Koozie!

    Looks great I also express concern for long term use on the handle. I would think that putting less flat between the curved handle to where it attaches would make it stronger for long term if you did not use anything to re-enforce it. the only other thing I am curious on is how low it sits on the cup itself, if it will give it an angle over time and use.
  14. I would agree, you do need practice, but we all do in areas. overall not bad, and as long as you are learning from your mistakes, then your next one will be even better, and the one after that loads better than your first. just keep at it, and you will be happier with your results each time.
  15. Work Order

    when doing wet form, dying is always my last job. but I usually do dying last on any project minus stitching (in case I want to get the inside of a project) and slicking the edges. as for stamping, I have never tried stamping or tooling a project I planned on wet forming, as I fear that same problem you are having.
