  1. Very nice work! Love the oak motif! One of my favorites. Also really dig the petal lifts you did as well. Welcome to the forum too.
  2. Feibing's Pro does have oil in it. Thanks @tsunkasapa. That's what I needed to know. Just didn't want to ruin my work. Do you recommend cutting it 50/50 with water? Or just straight 100% Super Sheen?
  3. I purchased a quart bottle of Super Sheen (water based) some time back, thinking I would be using mainly eco-flo (water based) dyes. I have since changed direction and am using primarily Feibing's pro dye. My question is, will the water based Super Sheen be an acceptable top coat for the alcohol based dye? Has anyone tried it? If it's a no-go, I can purchase resolene...just didn't want to have to if not necessary. Thanks!
  4. well done. Loved the scenery and seeing your "finished" shop. I am sure there will be more additions and alterations as time goes by. Ever changing.
  5. Beautiful work. Always fun jumping on here and seeing talents and abilities put to work. Any daughter would be proud of that fine piece of craftsmanship, 'specially since its from Dad. I am sure there will be even more conversations regarding your work between the two of you. Thanks for sharing!
  6. lol. no. From original poster....I thought you were the OP, but when I scrolled up, I realized you weren't. Sorry for the confusion.

  8. That is really sharp. Never seen that before. By the time I get around to it (not a Round TUIT, lol), I will not remember where this post is located.
  9. sciving it may help, before sanding. Still not sure where the fibers are if not on the edge.
  10. pics please. It will continue to get more fluid as you go. proper casing of the leather will lend to the pear shading and beveling. Also, I find that the better pieces of leather, like Hermann Oak, really make a difference vs. the import stuff with regard to crispness and clarity of stamping impressions.
  11. Great to hear. So much is lost as to the importance of GREAT customer service.
  12. Couldn't agree more with @JLSleather. There is much to be said from picking up a stamping tool and whacking it multiple times in leather to understand the proper angle, pressure applied, etc. When I first started hand stitching, I broke needles using pliers to pull them through the holes, my stitch lines were all over the place, and were never aligned front to back. I was able to pull up a dozens of YouTube videos and watch another artist perform the task FOR FREE (there are so many folks that have the ability to pass on their knowledge with no need to pay for it.) to help me understand how to do it better. There have been numerous folks who I have learned from who have no idea they taught me something. My thoughts are (and why I joined this forum) that if I can help someone become better at the craft, for free! As the Johnny Cash song says, "No Charge".
