These are my projects, very new to this. 4 months in. 

Guitar strap for my 12 year old cousin DW. I used a ready strap and just tooled it. She is learning guitar, I am learning to let my paint dry before adding clear...

wallets are the 3rd and 4th things I've ever made. I think I like the interior that is empty best.

and the FIALA tooling is for a duck call neck strap. first attempt at tooling. I know now that I want a sewing machine and better quality leather.

If that is acrylic paint, you should be able to add more to fix that.  Unlike dye which is absorbed, paint just sits on top.

Keep up the great work.

Great start! Steep learning curve on the tooling, isn't it?

Thank you all. It's angelus paint, I'll touch it up for her. Tooling is the fun part! Definitely tougher than I expected when I first started, and far more addicting. I got some swatches from Horween and plan to order some leather soon. I can't wait to have an actual supply of leather and not have to worry about getting more in.
