  1. Here's my latest laser engraved offering - a vanity tray made for my daughter. Laser engraving done on an LS3020 desktop laser: http://hpclaser.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=92 It's a hobby machine and not cheap - but my husband bought it for doing some wood work, so why wouldn't I take advantage of it :-) Dyed first with vinegaroon, then finished with Fiebings black oil dye mixed with irridescent medium (to give it some shine) Dragon painstakingly painted with Angelus leather paint (pewter)
  2. Here's my second attempt at an ebook cover using the laser to engrave the leather. The front is 3mm thick leather, the back is 2mm. The pearlescent blue is angelus leather paint, on a Fiebings Royal blue background. The laser cutting is definitely getting better. I'm quite pleased with this one.
  3. Reclaimed "el cheapo" -chair, covered with 7-8oz leather. Airbrushed Tan spirit dye (narvfärg/narvsvärta/narviväri), border Fiebing's Chocolate Brown. Finished with Mahogany Antique & Aussie Wax. Had fun on this one, would love to make more of these.
  4. Hi This is my most difficult leather carving to date. I tried really hard to get my leather cased just right, but I still found if difficult to work with. I stropped the swivel knife, but I keep thinking it should be a bit easier than it was. How sharp does the knife need to be? Should I be able to slice paper with it or something? Anyway - after trying out some different dying and painting techniques, I'm quite pleased with the result. Any hints or tips?
  5. As usual, just swinging by to share a couple of pieces, make some comments and say hello. Hope everyone is doing well. If you have Instagram, I finally started an account and have been working into posting progress pics, bike pics, etc. there since it is so fast and easy. #threemuttscustoms
  6. I'm an archer who just finished his first back quiver. Over 40 hours of labor (maybe closer to 50; I stopped keeping exact tally at 38). It's my own design, an adaptation (mutation?) of a very basic Al Stohlman/Tandy template, which had no carving or overlays. This project was a lot of self-education about tools, cutting, carving, stamping, dyeing (including mixing and shading), leather characteristics, hardware, problem-solving, and finishing. The close-up of the dragon carving was taken before I dyed the rest of the quiver. I got the dragon, by the way, from the web, imported it into Photoshop, manipulated it into a line drawing, scaled and printed it, traced it, then transferred it to the leather. I'm really proud of how it turned out, especially since I don't consider myself much of an artist. The overlays took a total of about 10 hours to cut (had to be a bit wider than the quiver to make up for a little extra circumference, especially over the straps), stamp like dragon scales, dye, and sew by hand (had to do that as I curved the quiver, otherwise they wouldn't lie flat). But they were worth the effort. Of course, I hand-sewed the entire quiver and learned how to keep my diamond awl sharp. The Tandy plans called for a 24" strap from the bottom. After sewing, I realized that this was way too short. So I had to improvise, sewing on an extension in a non-visible way. This was my 6th leather making project ever, though many times more complex than the others (coaster, archery arm guard, change purse, wallet, and uncarved and pre-dyed hip quiver). I really couldn't have made this quiver, however, without the comments I found at this site. Thanks to both the pros and novices who wrote about their experiences.
  7. Hello everyone! I'm still fairly new to the forum and I am enjoying seeing what everyone else is working on, or has done in the past. At the moment I am working on a commission from an old Air Force buddy of mine, a Celtic knotwork belt with a dragon head at the ends of the two knots. This is really version "2.0" of this belt as the first one I made was much simpler and not nearly as nice of a finished product. The first belt had the same knotwork design, minus the dragon heads, the edges were never burnished, and I used Ecoflow Kova Colors instead of dye or stain. Over the years the Kova Colors have cracked a bit, the rough edges of the belt have frayed, and overall I am not satisfied with how it has held up. Thankfully my friend who I made it for still loves it. This time around I am going to burnish the edges of the belt, I added the dragon heads to the design, and I am coloring it using Ecoflow Water Stain. From my research, the Ecoflow Water Stain is a quality product that will last through the wear and tear of regular usage. Also, the additions to the knotwork design, though a pain to draw up at first, were actually very easy to tool in and the look is a hundred times better in my opinion. The first photo is of the original belt that I made, while the others are of the current belt project, the "2.0 version".
  8. Just a Head (FWIW I've read Joanna's tutorial, John Henry's and couple on the Masks forum) How do I make a molded dragon head purse? I want to make a small purse that's dragon head shaped. I've got some examples that give a general idea. One is more art than usable purse, 2nd is a discarded alligator plushie. I want to mold it like the art purse, but shaped more like the plushie with a more triangular head. Seems like this has to be a turn out in order not to show stitches? If I'm going to mold this 1" up from my base do I start with a piece of leather that's something like 1 3/4" bigger than the base? What's the most 4-6oz belly leather can be stretched? Shoulder leather? Don't suppose the leather gives any kind of warning before it cracks? Is there some kind of conditioning to make leather easier to stretch? I'm making a plug, but why is molding pull down and not push out from back? Do people ever use just foam for their plugs? Any special type? Current plan is take 2 - 1x4s cut into "more triangular" shapes, shim up at back to get a wedge profile, and put a piece on top to get an approximate forehead shape. This is the rough shape, planning to goin with finer tools for some detailing.
  9. So, these guys aren't masks, they're wall hangings, but I don't know where else to put them! Masks seemed most appropriate. On the left we have Wilifred. An aquatic dragon, he spent years in the Caribbean, where he lived in a sunken ship. On the right, is Snurg, who guarded an abandoned iron mine and smelter. They're life size, and the only things not leather are the eyes and teeth. I showed them at DragonCon, and they're going to be going with some of my other dragons, to an art gallery showing shortly.
  10. Here is a almost complete Bracer, I'm still awaiting my 1/4 inch eyelet setter to come in the mail, asthe one i have now is too small for the job at hand. I saw thses on the tandy website, and decided to make a green pair, rather than the ones they have on the site. Tell me what you think?? I will also be placing two brass snaps on wrist, so it will be laced up and snaped to arm. The photos are to big to upload so i attacked link to photobucket.
  11. From the album: Serendipity Designs

    Custom "War Belt" design and Small Bracers for larping or reenactment. A custom design we put together and tooled, then colored in with Feibings alcohol blue and Oil-dye brown (2011)
