Fiddling with some leather tooling

Postby theowl » Fri Jan 12, 2018 6:16 am

Figured I'd make a dunedain star. It makes a fine fibula/brooch. It woukd be a nice hair accessory if I had any. I carved the stick from some cocobolo, and it really ties the whole thing together, literally. Image

Nice work :P

Oh fun!
What if anything did you use for the background texture on the leather?

Also... what is that wool it's lying on? The stansborough weave?

I used a few different background stamps and kind of layered them to create the pebbled look.
