  1. Great step by step progression, and nice use of the bar-grounder tool. Excellent work.
  2. That came out great! I really like the way the dye colour eventually turned out, and the paint colours are wonderful.
  3. Amazing tooling and dying. Very nice skills. Wow.
  4. I think you are doing really good work on the sun flowers. Since you want critiques I think you are working with one of the more difficult background tools. They don’t look bad, but that tool works better when you don’t have a lot of space to fill. If you have a big space to fill, you might want to either change to a bigger tool, or just fill it with another flower. Here is an example, not my work, of that specific tool used in small areas. They manage to make the small circles, or dimples, look part of the pattern. I do like what you’ve got and encourage you to keep at it.
  5. Excellent! Very nicely done.
  6. It looks excellent. Bravo.
  7. That looks great. I really like the face you did.
  8. Thanks. I am waiting for the pro resist to full dry before I can continue, so I am cutting out the backing/lining.
  9. Thanks. I wasn’t sure the different dye colours would go together, but I am liking it so far. I made an Iron Maiden themed guitar strap for my brother-in-law a few years back and wanted to make something for myself this time. I worked on the paint a bit more, including the sunset, but still need to do a bit more before I use the resist and then antique it. Here is a picture of both ends so far.
  10. This is the first stage of dyeing this guitar strap. If you look closer you can see the mistakes, but overall I am fairly happy with it. I will be applying acrylic paint to fix some of the problem areas, followed by pro resist and antique gel, but there is a sunset at one end I want to practice. I haven’t tried doing one before, and it is probably obvious I don’t have an air brush. I want to give it a shot with dye, but if it doesn’t go well I will just have to use paint. It has been fun to make so far, but I still have to work out the lining and sewing.
  11. Thanks everyone. I have just started to apply some dye and will update this in a few days.
  12. I enjoyed the movie “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” and wanted to make myself a guitar strap with some of the images from the title character’s story. I decided rather than try to carve Tim Blake Nelson‘s face, I would draw him as a skeleton since carving faces is much harder. It still has a ways to go and is just a work in progress right now.
  13. I made a corset a while back. I don't recall the weights exactly. I think the front panels were maybe 4-5 oz. but I had folded the edges over and then overlapped them. I know the back panels were thicker because I wanted to ensure the eyelets wouldn't tear out when lacing up the back. I think they were maybe 7-8 oz. and over lapped too. Here is a link to that project. Painted corset
