In today’s leather bounty is tooled leather dog collar that’ll be available soon.
Upon request I started to put together a library of airbrushing leather moments. Here you’ll find a Sheridan styled and tooled flower sprayed in my unlucky color blue. Ironically my favorite color just the hardest to work with in my World. The piece in question is a business card case expanded to a wallet. 😉
Here’s a neat thing Google + local business pages is doing for Google + local business page users.
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.
My friend Patti @ADKArtsBoutique had an idea of a drum style handbag. 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!

Gearheads, Old Skoolers leather dog collars are here.
This is really my style. I’ve been building hotrods since 16. Even my mini bike was altered. What a story that was… Billy. Nine yrs old we start my mini bike up and it takes off with no one on it riding a wheelie til it hit green st. elem 43 yrs ago. jimini crickets!
So here’s couple of pieces I am presently working on. Anyone use Masters glue?
Tooled leather dog collar was supposed to be 2″ longer and whoops! It was wet so I just reduced the size and went to town with a old school tandy design. Kinda blew my schedule for the day as if I’m not far enough behind now. However if I really looked at it like that I wouldn’t be having as much fun as I am. When I’m not having fun my work doesn’t look the way it could. We, I cannot have that! So this is the outcome of a the day. I actually applied the finish and even went against what I usually do, no color yet… on this “tooled leather dog collar”.
