    Anyone ever done Paisley?

    If you looked through the whole album you can see my whole process, tear drop templates, then rough sketch of the fill in based on the stamping tools available on of the things that helped the most was stamping a scrap strip and marking the tool number so I could see what I was working with.

    Anyone ever done Paisley?

    I was hoping to give it another go this weekend, I filtered through all that stuff and really did not find anything but looked at so much Paisley I got a few ideas to try.

    Anyone ever done Paisley?

    Did a search but I am not seeing much to help with my dilemma, the patterns are too busy to try carving and don't translate well into what tools I should be trying to use for the fill spent the whole day ( my work shutdown for a blizzard)messing around and maybe came up with one or two that were close to being okay.

    Steel hammer loops

    Just my experience but most guys in the trades like the leather loops they get sick if the click clack from the hammer on the loop.

    Foldlines in pigskin

    Thanks anyways, I decided to cement it as a liner and the fold lines pretty much disappeared.

    Foldlines in pigskin

    Back awhile ago I bought some pigskin lining leather that has been folded for years is there any hope that I can get those foldlines out? There was a post back in 2014 that suggested dampening and hanging to remove lines has any one tried this or does anyone have any other suggestions?

    Digital printed holsters

    A couple of years ago I made a journal cover for my son's girlfriend at the time I used transfer sheet like you would use for fabric and covered it with satin sheen.
