  1. I know I'm a bit late to this party but, I've found that using 3M blue masking tape works pretty well at keeping the schmutz off the surface. Doesn't do much to stop the burns at the cut line but definitely simplifies the cleanup process. Depending on the surface finish of the leather, a little help from a blow dryer or a heat gun will help break the bond to remove the tape.
  2. If none of the suggestions work, try getting an artgum eraser. They're good for removing all sorts of adhesive residue.
  3. I'm not sure which is more impressive . . . the end result or the amount of time and detail that went into it! Very well executed!
