Carving Lesson 101

40 posts in this topic

The Paul Burnett Free School of Leather Ornamentation has begun. Here is the first lesson in the Carving 101 course.

I will start by examining some of the misconceptions many people have about layouts and transfers. Then offer some axioms to ensure accuracy in performing the task. Learn and Enjoy

Paul, I am in no way artistic. I take after my father who always claimed "All my taste is in my mouth." But I understand this! It makes sense to me. Thank you for taking the time to put these together. They will be VERY helpful to many, many people.

This looks like exactly what I need right now to improve my skills. Especially when it comes to getting the right result out of patterns.

I am a little ahead because I had on my own figured out to focus on where things follow through and shaded in an extra copy of my patterns before tooling complicated designs to be sure I got it right.

Thank you Paul, for posting this series of lessons. Personally speaking, you couldn't have posted them at a better time as I've just begun wading into this artistic forum with no more knowledge of it other than I know that leather comes from animals :). I'm so grateful to you for taking the time and effort to put this tutorial together for us all and look forward to sitting at the feet of the master and absorbing your tips and tricks. Thank you for saving me time, frustration and a lot of wasted leather :).
