  3. ...Thank you Red Cent, I will certainly give it a try and drop you a line to let you know how it goes...appreciate the assistance
  4. I wondered if anyone had some knowledge of a product or method by which i could 'stiffen' leather? I am currently making 3-dimentional pieces of work. Similar to 'paper cuts' but using 2-3 mm hide. The problem I am having is that when I cut out the negative space round my design...(in this case, a carved bouquet of grasses)...the stems are thin and the grass heads are too heavy and flop forward and down. If I could paint on the reverse of the leather a product that would make it stiff it would solve the problem.....Any help gratefully received. Thanks Members.
  5. super work. I love it...Thank you for posting this.
