    Really like the look! My only thing is that I prefer having the burr of rivets on back but this looks great!

    How do I keep antique from flaking off?

    Thanks never thought of shoe polish. Worry that it will color everything not just the highlights I’m looking for, will give it a try.

    Thank you for the kind words. Here is a closer look at the front. Still not thrilled with scrolls and a few other details.

    How do I keep antique from flaking off?

    Thanks I never thought about Lexol. Does it take off TanKote and antique?

    How do I keep antique from flaking off?

    Thanks everyone. I knew I was using the antique to try and accomplish a look it wasn’t quite designed to do, but want highlight the barbwire. Any suggestions without having to paint each line and center? I tried using dye in each center on a practice piece but it bled into the wire. Thanks for all thoughts and suggestions. Kelly
  12. I made this belt as a shoulder strap for a computer bag. Herman Oak, oil, 1 coat TanKote, Fiebings Mahogany antique, 2 coats TanKote. When I folded/bent the belt the antique flaked out of the center of the wire as you can see in the buckle. Continued all up the belt. Any suggestions? I really liked the look and recognize it he antique was pretty thick in centers but hoped it would hold. Thank for any suggestions. Kelly
