      I've been using 3-4 ounce milled veg carving leather for several years now. When mounted on illustration board, one can tool it like it's 7-8 oz. Called and talk with Glen at Wickett and Criag

      I have heard that spirit dye can be added to Gum Tragacanth. I'm going to try it.

      It would help just to wet it and let it set for a moment. But splitting to about 6-7ounce would be helpful also.

  7. Paul, tell your wife to pull the earring out and hand it to people giving her compliments. When I say, "Thank you, they are leather." they ry to rip my earlobe off to touch and feel.
