Airbrushing leather 2

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. 😉

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.

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!

2014 in review @acrossleather

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,800 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

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”.
