  1. i don't have an option to not use a browser for irc.... :/ anywho, no one ever shows up in that room.
  2. with a seat post, like every other seat on every bicycle?
  3. I'm in the chat right now. it's #leatherworker and my name is SansGato . seriously, it's 12:22 AM on monday. i'm in chat.. waiting. for.. you.
  4. Hand stitched, hand dyed to match a custom frame the customer had made. Wet molded it around the seat base and then did the dye on the leather.
  5. what part are you having problems with? Error messages, etc..?
  6. my guess is you're putting it on too heavy? I'm more interested in how or why acrylic (painted on?) doesn't work as a resist for you? Do you have pictures of your items that show it not working? I have noticed that no matter how many coats I do, the antique will still discolor the resist a little bit. But i can absolutely wipe off most of the antique paste.
  7. Here's another one I did.
  8. here is a cheap knife (I probably use this one, works fine) https://www.amazon.com/CONBEE-Carving-Leather-Leathercraft-Working/dp/B01DVJ9E94/ref=sr_1_35?ie=UTF8&qid=1495681467&sr=8-35&keywords=leather+carving+set backgrounding tool A104 https://www.amazon.com/Tandy-Leather-Craftool-Background-Stamp/dp/B0042UIO3Y/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1495681972&sr=8-6&keywords=a104+leather+tool you can do A LOT with just those two tools.
  9. PRACTICE. You didn't learn your alphabet in one sitting. You didn't learn mathematics in one day. You probably won't learn leather craft in one sitting either. There is nothing wrong with the image. I believe it is your lack of practice. How many times did you write out the alphabet as a child? Probably more than seven times. What tools are you using? What knife to cut the leather? What surface are you cutting the leather on? What type of leather? (looks like veg tanned but it's hard to tell from the pic) I have a piece I'm doing for a customer. I did FIVE test pieces (carved and colored) before I set down to work on the final piece. The first test piece would have worked but I don't do my final work until I am 100% happy with my test pieces. I also consider ever piece I do to be practice because we can always be learning and improving. Keep posting your progress and we'll do our best to help you.
  10. really nice. What is your back grounding tool?
  11. The program I use is web based, through a browser. It's very simple to use. Please let us know if you need help.
  12. Let me know if you need help using the above IRC chat web site. It's pretty simple but may be a little confusing so just give a yell.
  13. I really have no plans to do anymore. I just did it as a challenge to myself cause it didn't seem like it would be that difficult. Hopefully it will encourage others to some of their own.
  14. https://kiwiirc.com/client I'm using that client. I created a #leatherworker room. We can use that until we get the other one back up and running. Let me know if you need help. I'm 'SansGato' in that room, most of you would know me by pnj.
