  1. Not to be an ignorant American or anything but I thought cow leather was kind of taboo in India. Oh yeah my ignorance is showing goat ect. ..... Nevermind.....

    Scythe Blade Sheath

    I would lay it down on a piece of poster board trace the blade and work out the final project over on the poster board.

    Really sucks that cleaning an airbrush is part of weekly shop maintenance. An end of use simple blowout vs. a full brake down and clean. And I thought it was supposed to save me a lot of time! (In truth AB save lots of time. You can do some great effects, even delve into AB art. Drying time is about 5 to 7 minutes if that much. On smaller projects it's dry before I do a simple blow out of the AB. More consistent color throughout a piece. The color I use is so much closer to the color advertised, no more darkening a project beyond recognition trying to even out the color. And I end up using less dye.) All and all I call it a win.

    Snap dots

    If they are too long that may happen as well. try trimming the shaft a bit.

    Making a strop - which leather to use?

    I would use a light coat of neatsfoot oil on it just before the compound.

    dip dye and Fiebing's - real disaster.

    Used to have this happen all the time, I figured it was cuz it was from the cut end and ended up more often than not making it DARKER to cover for it. I have been using an airbrush and I haven't had this problem in a while, though there are other issues but a light bulb will solve that one. Can you give a link to the cheap dye you use?
