  1. Just a little FYI I was taught when I was younger is that every animal has enough brains to tan it's own hide

    Substitute for a pedal lifter

    I was wondering if you do not have a pedal lifter if there is any other tool that you could use to get a similar effect like a modeling spoon maybe?

    Sheridan Style Tools

    So I wana get better with my floral and sheridan style carving and I have some crafttools but dont have all the sizes and tools I need so I've been looking at the barry king sheridan style tool list but was wondering if it's worth it to buy the kit or if I should buy the tools separate I have a leather wrangler swivle knife already so I'm just looking for stamps and input is much appreciated as I'm very new to leatherwork and especially the carving side
  5. So I'm trying to learn how to carve basic floral patterns and would eventually like to learn Sheridan style but I'm not artistic in the slightest and pretty inexperienced with a swivel knife other than straight border cuts so I was wandering what the best book to start with would be that would include patterns to follow and the how why and where you use each tool thanks in advance for any help

    Best top coat for back quiver

    I did not cut it maybe I will cut it and try again one other problem I was having was bubbles everytime the brush was passing over a tooled impression was I just pressing too hard on the brush? I also have bees wax and neatsfoot oil but I have never used that mixture before and not sure if that will lock in the dye or not
  9. First time posting on here so not sure if I posted in the right spot or not. But I have just finished an archery back quiver made of veg tan. tooled and dyed with eco flo gel antique in the saddle tan color and now it's time for a top coat I tried using resolene but came out very streaky so I removed with rubbing alcohol and am wondering if it could use leather balm with atom wax as a top coat and still prevent dye from bleeding and still be kinda water resistant.
