  1. I am working on a new video course "The Artistic Approach to Leather Carving" I hope that I can demostration some of "hard to comprehend" things so that they are better understood.
  2. Hello Everyone - I've started a series of DVD's to show leather workers step-by-step, in real-time, my philosophy of carving leather. I decided to do this demonstration in real time because I wanted to make sure you understand the whole process, from making a layout to signing the picture once completed. I wanted to show the thinking process that goes into making a good layout and how important it is that you understand what every line represents. Please visit my blog for an in-depth preview and to order the DVD today: http://paintingcow.c...g-big-horn-ram/ Paul Burnett
  3. Dave and interested others: Just being an employee of a company doesn't mean it is okay. About 30 years ago I was asked by a district manager to make 12 buckles for Texaco to give to his junior managers. He also had one made for his boss, which he gave to him. About two weeks after he picked up the order he came by the shop and asked that I not make any more "pleeeeeeeeeese!!!". He said I almost lost my job over this. I didn't suffer any consequences. You really need to get written permission by one authorized to give the permission, especially where trademarks are concerned.
  4. happy birthday,Paul

  5. Your the master of all masters, by far

  6. I would like to apologize for the lack of additional lessons to the Paul Burnett School of Leather Ornamentation here at www.leatherworker.net and the free tutorials at www.paintingcow.com. I have had to deal with some medical problems over the past three months and was no able to add to the lessons as promised. As things are more or less back to normal now, I will be adding a new lesson for the each of the courses on leatherworkers during the month of March. ONE OTHER THING. I have a carved leather picture I wish to sell. I have posted photos of the piece at www.leatherworker.net in the Market Place Forum, Finished Leather Goods Section. It is my interpretation of Frank Frazetta's women with two tigers. It was done (by me) in the early 1980's. It is a cut out appliqué on a gray suede background. I consider it to be one of my favorite carvings. As it was colored with leather dye, most of the color has faded into a nice tinted patina. It is professionally framed and measures 18"x 22". My asking price is $600 plus shipping cost. If anyone is interested, please let me know via email and we can work out the details.

  10. The Paul Burnett Free School of Leather Ornamentation has begun. Here is the first lesson in the Painting 101 course. In this first lesson I deal with the main misconception. Can you guess what it is? It is the doubts you have about yourself and your ability to overcome them in order become a successful painter of realistic carvings. I will introduce you to the paints I chose and why I chose them for the medium for this course. PBPainting01.pdf PBPainting01.pdf

  13. Hi folks. I just wanted to let you know that I have posted a new tutorial to the Free Tutorial program at www.paintingcow.com. I noticed a few weeks back that a few people mentioned they were dissatified with their pine cones. This months tutorial is about tooling a couple of basic pine cones. I will probably carry this on into another lesson in December. Also, I want to remind you that the Paul Burnett Free School of Leather Ornamentation will start right here on leatherworker.net November 1, 2009. I hope you will find them enjoyable and enlightening. I will be here to be a guiding hand to help you improve your skills in this wonder craft of ours. Thanks, Paul
  14. Thanks for your comment. I don't know if you saw the notice that I will soon be writting some more free lesson on leatherworker.net along with the one offered on the www.paintingcow.com web site. Paul
  15. Thanks again everyone, and a special thanks to Johanna for allowing me this opportunity to teach those wanting to learn. Glad to see that the current issue of the Journal has my cover and cover article. I haven't received my copy yet so I look forward to getting it soon. There is a followup article on turned back leaves and scrolls, so I don't know if that was including in this issue or one forthcoming. I also submitted a swivel knife exercise that I think you will find useful. I am encouraged by the response to my posting, both those who commented and those who viewed. Looking forward. Paul
