  1. Hello all, So I was wondering if anybody has worked with Artisan's Choice veg tan leather, sold by Leather Guys out of Minnesota. If so, does it tool well? What other leather is it compatible too, etc? I've developed a fondness for Wickett & Craig veg tan, I love the way it tools, even more so than Herman Oaks, and is my usual go to. But as you probably know, it's not the cheapest and usually takes close to a week to get to me when shipped. I've only ordered exotic leather from leather guys and it's been high quality not to mention I live in Minnesota so it only takes usually 2 days to arrive. Any feedback would be much appreciated, thank you!
  2. Open to reasonable offers. Also have 37 stamps for sale. Most are doubles I received as gifts and haven't been used. If interested I can provide the numbers
  3. Starting with the stamps, I have 1 Barry King, 18 craftools and 18 U.S. Stamps. Can provide the stamp numbers just ask. Also included- Craftool pro swivel knife w/2 blades, one ceramic filigree Craftool pro embossing wheel with 8 embossing wheels Craftool stitch spacing wheel with 3 different sized wheels Craftool adjustable creaser Craftool lace cutter Craftool interchangeable hole punch (2tools) 15 punch heads Craftool diamond stitching chisels 4mm 6 prong,4 prong and 1 prong. Round stitching chisel Table mounted strap cutter with a ton of Olfa blades Leather hole punch from Tandy with adjustable wheel Tandy aussie strap cutter Tandy magnet bag clasp setting tool and and anvils Aiskaer 6mm diamond stitching chisels 2 hardwood burnished, each has different sized channels from the other Edge bevelers size 1-5 Bayonet swivel knife Craftool pro double headed stylus Skiving knife Button hole punch Heart, diamond and 2 other decrative hole punches Craftool circle template Craftool (forget the name of the tool- wooden handle and you insert a swivel knife blade and it has an edge guard). 2 Tandy stamp racks, believe each holds about 37 stamps
  4. I have slowly been upgrading my leather crafting tools over the years and along with doubles (which almost all the stamps are & haven't been used) that I have received as gifts, well I have a whole drawer filled with tools just sitting there not being used so figured I'd sell them. I went onto tandys website (and the websites for the non-tandy tools) to get prices so I could price them fair. Of course they were prices for new tools (again which almost all the stamps are) and the exact price came out to $910.64. Of course I'm not expecting or asking for that amount. I have listed all the different tools in the message below. Message me if you want the stamp numbers. Open to REASONABLE offers. I'm hoping to sell this as a package deal but might consider breaking it up.
  5. Thanks for the feedback battle. I do have one of those backgrounders... hhmm.. I might use that and another backgrounder. I'll definitely post when I'm done. Thanks to you and Dustin for taking the time to give me some feedback
  6. Thanks Dustin I appreciate it. I was first thinking that too- using a backgrounder. I have about 6 different gravel, pebble, etc.. backgrounders and a usual go to when tooling dirt, gravel and such along with getting nuts with my swivel knife- as I usually get 2-5 orders a week for a wallet, purse, etc.. with the customer wanting their mud truck, Jeep, etc.. tooled on it.. no prob. That's what I thought with this one until I got into tooling this and.. nothing, like my brain just shut down.. problem is, I have never had an order with the mud being so watery... thinking about maybe taking my swivel knife and cutting some outlines where the muds flying off and then beveling it and tooling it down.. but not sure that would produce the most realistic look and that's what I'm after
  7. Struggling with what tool/technique to use to tool the mud and water flying off the tire in the pic below. Tooling this on a customer's wallet. Any suggestions or help would be amazing
  8. Hello. Wondering if anybody could give me some advise on what stamp tools or other techniques they use to tool a mud truck tire moving fast, specially how to tool the mud/water being flung off and over the tire. I would consider myself at the higher end of intermediate as far as tooling experience comes but for some reason I'm struggling with this. No problem with with truck, just the dang tire. Here is the pic I'm tooling for a customer
  9. Hey everyone, hope all are well. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on what stamping tools or other techniques they use for tooling mud flying off a mudtruck tire that's moving at a high rate of speed. I've been tooling/leather crafting for years now, decent enough to make a living off of my leather crafting and custom tooling I do on it, but for some reason, I'm really struggling with this dang order... I have had several customers wanting me to tool their mudtruck, jeep, etc and no problem. But the pic this fella wants is unlike the usual- he's hauling butt through a mud bog. Before I ask for a different picture or have to alter the pic a bit, thought if any of my fellow crafters could throw me a bone. Appreciate any help
