  1. Has anyone used Fieblings Acrylic Dye, hopefully in Light Blue and could tell me about it? Pictures of the results? I have a customer who wants a light blue bag (I mainly stick to browns when I am dying) and I have no experience with blues. The closest color I can find is Fieblings Acrylic Dye, but I don't know what the results of that would be.....or if you know of another good dye that would yield a light blue color, please let me know! HELP!
  2. Where did you find those at? Ideally I am looking for skin, but that's not a bad deal for a rug! Thank you! I will check out both places
  3. Hi there! Where can I find buffalo hides - not bison. So far I have only found Springfield as a supplier, but you cannot purchase half or full hides. Do you know of any other suppliers out there? Thanks for the help!
  4. Thank you! I will check out hidehouse! I haven't heard of them!
  5. Hi there, I am looking for suppliers that have a good range of chrome tan and/or dyed veg tan leather hides. Who do you recommend? Thanks!
  6. I've had some interest in some of the goods I've been making. I've already sold 3 bags to friends and some other small items. I am curious about those who have taken to making enough product to attend vendor/art shows exc... what are the steps in becoming an actual business. I don't fully understand the following; -Wholesale pricing - if you are not paying sales tax on your own purchases, then you charge sales tax on your products? What if not everything you use was purchased wholesale? Maybe I am over thinking this part? -How do you figure out if you need to charge sales tax? -Pricing your items to make a profit? - Any other advice, or resources on what to do... I've never done anything like this before. Thank you in advance!
  7. Looking for some general advice on working with deer skins.... - What is your preferred method of cutting it? - Best way to punch holes without stretching it too much? - What is your favorite way to make lacing out of it? - Any other tid bits of info would be appreciated! Thanks a bunch!!
  8. Thank you! I will talk to the Tandy Manager again and that is a great idea on Craig's List. Ill look up those postings right now. I keep hearing that there are some leather workers in Tucson, but its been hard to track them down.
  9. Hello, I am looking for leather works in the Tucson area that might be open to the idea of mentoring me. I am new-ish to leather work but would really love to learn from someone who knows the trade well. If at the very least I would love to make some local connections!
