    Thanks! Carving, embossing and interprocessing - about 20 hours, coloring - 30 hours. I am not a very fast worker.

    If in short words, in this case (without using leather inserts) the process is as follows: 1. Transfer the contour pattern to the leather (with a stylus or, as I usually do, print the contour with inkjet printer on the film and apply the printed side to the leather). 2. Carving, stamping, modeling with spoon and stylus. 3. Molding (I do not know how correctly I translated the term into English). 4. Coloring with spirit dyes. Recently, I made a small entertaining (non-teaching) video that just shows this steps of the example of the German Shepherd portrait.

    Mike, many thanks you again for your active participation and help!!! I am glad that Tandy, in the person of Mr. Jeff, has confirmed her customer focus and that the name and reputation for them is not an empty phrase. I hope that very soon the Ukrainians will again be able to use Tandy's services and goods.

    This MUST be a Joke!! ...Nope!

    In Ukraine, several years ago, they introduced mandatory labeling of products "Does not contain genetically modified components." It's funny to watch this sign on bottled plain water

    Honestly, I don’t want to make online purchases using anonymous access (proxy or something similar). If the site "does not trust me," why should I trust him with my personal and billing (payment) information?

    Mike, thank you so much. I am very sorry that in this way you have lost some of your precious time and nerve cells. The last few years I have the impression that incompetence and disgusting attitude to the customer have become the norm for most companies. I thought it was only in our national business. But, apparently, this is a global problem According to my personal observations, as soon as the owner(s) of the company ceases to take an active part in its work, passing on all decisions to the hired management, the quality of work and friendliness of company drops sharply. I really want to hope that in the case of Tandy this is just an excess of executor, and not a company policy. Thank you again!

    Tandy on Instagram confirmed the existence of problems accessing his sites from "some countries" without giving a reason. Thanks to everyone who kept this thread afloat.

Based on the fact that everything from other countries works fine, and with me, when using a proxy, too, it’s very similar to blocking by the IP group associated with the country.

    I get 403 error both on my work computer and at home. And on the smartphone too - both in network at work and at home.

    Mike, I did not even count on such a radical way of solving the issue Thanks!!! I am definitely not a valuable customer for Tandy (most of my purchases are books and some tools). But in Ukraine there are a sufficient number of people working with leather, who, I think, will be glad of the possibility of continuing their purchases through website TandyLeather.

    Yes, I haven't vacuumed my laptop for quite a while. Need to do. Thanks for the warning And as for dust bunnies, I can’t even remember a special word in Ukrainian for that. Well, except that the word dust is "poroh". Sir, the USA is doing quite a lot in this direction, for which the Ukrainians are very grateful.
