Ghillies newly handmade leather custom tooled dog collar

Ghillies newly handmade leather custom tooled dog collar and is still under construction. Gearing up for a second attempt on a 2009 Corvette on leather. I still have stitching for all three in front of me and more color. 

Blood pressure yesterday under a 100 but feeling good. Delawares Hospice program now deems if your not basically dying within 6 months with the exception of cancer you’re not eligible after health assessment. The program is wonderful and everyone involved is to say the least, very professional, concerned and kind. For of those who cherish life above dirt it’s a double positive. Live everyday.

Here’s my latest Hand tooled leather leash ready for this show season. If you were wondering where I am located the answer is New Castle Delaware USA. 60 seconds from Delaware Memorial Bridge.
This leash is 1″ wide and has 40+” of tooling, all hand stitched with edges burnished to perfection. Oiled, airbrushed in multiple layers of British tan finally a top poly type finish. All leather articles require an ongoing maintenance regime ie. A quality leather conditioner/dressing assists removing dirt, replenishing natural oils etc… I have to say that but this poly finish I use on all projects in addition to a finish that has a UV protecting additive is remarkably adherent. A collar that I just couldn’t get the turquoise color correct ut um…. 5th time was a winner.. After applying finish to one of the scrap yard pieces I soaked into hot water and scrubbed 45 minutes with a stainless steel scrub thing in an attempt to remove finish from collar. I barely breached it. I might as well say I used a hand-held grinder to it and breached the finish. I did this for my knowledge so I could know hands down I am bringing to my clients not just a unique leather item but an heirloom possibly.
Where there it is my friends, my latest leash of which I quickly admit, I am no photographer and shows better than any picture I can take:}

P.S. The leash has a solid brass snap with a brilliant chrome plating. Should anyone have further questions concerning this piece, having a custom-made collar, matching leash, belt and beyond drop a line to –> acrossleathercollars@gmail.com or comment here.

Have a great day everyday!

Old skool, I’m in. She sends down a print and off and running we go. Here’s the parts, a borrowed vintage pattern from F. O. Baird several coats of spirit dyes, highlighter and some fancy poly coat I rock. I swear the finish is indestructible except with a grinder of course.

I’m getting the box readied for Patti Turon to work without pattern and custom finish it all into our newest creation. Stay tuned to @ADKArtsBoutique for all your updates ;)

Go Patti go!

This piece I am working on presently. I started out thinking making these flowers blue and wellll I went  another direction, red.

Is there ever enough time…. life’s so short. I apologize for my absence. I do love “WordPress” and would be much happier if I could post here daily and then share it all from here but that’s another scenario.
