  1. i don't know how they are made but it would seem to me that the inside would besealed with a flexable glue/sealer. Mayge a barge glue so when the bag is repeatadly swatted it won't puff a sand powder through the pores of the leather?? P.S. been giving it some thought,,what would it be like if you lined the inside with a vinal that didn't have pores??

  19. Me again I tryed to go lay down and get some sleep but no such luck,,so i came back and read your kind words,,thank tou here is a short section of chapter 12 (he clears his throat) the setting is old Europe around 1,250 AD (no wizards or dragons) Matt is the hero,,Thunder is his Shire horse (the biggest one ever seen) Megan is his soul mate/ true love but they don't know it yet: Matt had Thunder walk further out in Megan's direction and as she came down the small path she reached out for one tree then another to slow her slipping and sliding and keep herself from falling as she bounced from tree to tree. When he got closer he heard her scolding herself for being late. "Mr. Cugan's gonna be so mad cuz I'm so late." Matt spoke up and answered her as if they were having a conversation. "No he won't." his voice out of nowhere and her split attention from the slick ground to where the voice came from and the flash of a half man half monster at the edge of the trees she was coming out of made her squeal in fright. Her legs stopped so she wouldn't get near this highway troll that blocked her path but the trees ended and the mud turned to ice under her shoes and she fell back sitting in the mud. As she slid closer to Thunder her hawk like shrill turned into a muffled squeak and stopped at the same time she did. Her surprise kept her from seeing a horse and rider but in the mist. For all she knew she was nose to nose with a gruffy black Troll while sitting in the mud. Matt being as surprised at her fall as she was kept him from saying anything as he jumped down to help her. One more quick squeak escaped her as Matt's boots hit the ground then when she recognized him it dawned on her that not only was she late but now she was covered in mud. With her hands held wide not wanting to touch the mud on her dress she looked down at herself then out of frustration she let her hands fall the rest of the way to the ground. This splashed mud onto the only clean spot on her dress. Her face turned to a pout and held back the tears of frustration.
  20. Hi guys rotton old men like me don't have many friends except you guys sooo Its 3:03Am Jan 28 2008 and i just finished writting my first novel. Its 105,685 words long (30 chapters) its not a political statment or a how to book its a "And they lived happily ever after" kind of book this world has too many problems in it i just wanted to escape for a short time and give it a try. I just hope it isn't trash,,maybe some day i can get it published but i haven't got a clue to the next step i think an editor will cost an arm and a leg so gotta go make some knives to pay for it. anyway thanks for letting me say whee haw,,good night.
  21. Hi guys,,i've been following this and wanted to ask if the piece will remain flat,,ie painting on the wall if so it may last for years but if it is on a piece that flexes i would think it would be much shorter. mind you i have only used oils on canvas, wooden panels and canvas board. to put a finer point on it preping the canvas the medium goes into the weave of the canvas or wood fibers then dries,,,i don't think leather will work that way unless it dosen't flex. PS: i love the translusents for half tones they give depth to a painting http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa55/sk...es/SH100195.jpg they creat the illution of transpairency when painting cloth
  22. let me ask you guys/galls a question,, do you add scented oils that they add to candle wax,, would that destroy the art,,
