    How do I keep antique from flaking off?

    My best guess is you didn't remove all of the paste. You need to use a piece of wool, either synthetic or real, to get the antique out of all the cracks, etc. If you trying to use a rag or paper towel you are not getting it all. Your sequence of applying is correct. You don't have to let the antique sit for any period time. It doesn't make any difference. Terry

  6. The best book I know is "Sheridan Style Carving" by Bill Gardner and Clinton Faye. It is the Holy Grail as far as I am concerned. Terry

    No, I am saying if you don't glue all the way to the edge, you will a line of separation at some point in the future. Hope this helps

    Glued edges and finished edges.

    Not pulling too hard is important, but normal usage will also affect it. You don't glue the edges on a belt or wallet all the way to the edge,. they will separate. Promisw e

    Advice.

    What is sad is there used to be a number of people on this site that when they gave advice or a suggestion, you could take it to the bank. For whatever reasons they no longer participate. I can only guess the reasons. I am sure Hidepounder got tired of trying to explain what Sheridan style carving truly is. He could go thru a complete explanation of why flowers and circles do not automatically translate to Sheridan and he might as well have been talking to a wall. Charlie from Equs Leather used to be a regular contributor, but I will bet he got tired of arguing with people. Oh well, nothing stays the same and life goes on.
  15. Sheilajeanne, your instructor was wrong. Pear shaders (thumbprints)can be utilized either way. If you would look at the cover of the latest "Leather Crafters" journal, you will see a piece tooled Bobby Park (Hidepounder) on which every flower is treated the way Yin Tx did. It just all depends on the effect you want Terry
