Buster Scruggs themed Guitar Strap WIP

Recommended Posts

I enjoyed the movie “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” and wanted to make myself a guitar strap with some of the images from the title character’s story. I decided rather than try to carve Tim Blake Nelson‘s face, I would draw him as a skeleton since carving faces is much harder. It still has a ways to go and is just a work in progress right now.

Thanks everyone. I have just started to apply some dye and will update this in a few days.

This is the first stage of dyeing this guitar strap. If you look closer you can see the mistakes, but overall I am fairly happy with it. I will be applying acrylic paint to fix some of the problem areas, followed by pro resist and antique gel, but there is a sunset at one end I want to practice. I haven’t tried doing one before, and it is probably obvious I don’t have an air brush. I want to give it a shot with dye, but if it doesn’t go well I will just have to use paint. It has been fun to make so far, but I still have to work out the lining and sewing.

Thanks. I wasn’t sure the different dye colours would go together, but I am liking it so far. I made an Iron Maiden themed guitar strap for my brother-in-law a few years back and wanted to make something for myself this time. I worked on the paint a bit more, including the sunset, but still need to do a bit more before I use the resist and then antique it. Here is a picture of both ends so far.

Thanks. I am waiting for the pro resist to full dry before I can continue, so I am cutting out the backing/lining.
