Kyle's WWWIP Week 4
Hello everyone and welcome to Week 4! I have been experimenting with leather tooling this past week, and I would like to share my experiences with you today in a brief tutorial.
I recommend that you purchase the following items to use for this process.
- Cutting board
- Swivel knife
- Bevel and Texturing tools of your choice
- Double ended Stylus (I personally like one with a spoon at one end and a knife at the other)
- Edging line tool
- and Leather, of course!
Before you begin the tooling process, be sure that you have your leather shape patterned and cut out. Also, have a design ready to put on your leather piece. You can either print out a design on printing paper and lightly indent it into the leather with a pencil or stylus, or you can create a stencil on paper to lightly draw in with a pencil. I chose the latter for this example.
Please watch my video for the process!
