You are a very prolific craftsman. How many hours a week do you spend crankin' these things out? Do you collect parts constantly, and then see what works together? (that's how I start) I have just finished my first project today, and it has taken me months. Guys like you amaze me because of how often I see new work come out.
Thanks alot! I usually work, maybe 30-40 hours a week on my creations. But depends on what im working on, if i feel creative enough to work, how many im working on at one time. etc. Ya, i collect parts ALL the time, anywhere i can get them. Thanks again! Cant wait to see your new project!
You should try it for sure!! Its a great medium to work with!
When i make masks or hardened armor (depends what your using it for, battling, cosplay etc.) I just dip the leather in hot water and a white glue solution for a few seconds, wring it out shape and dry it. If your going for a rock solid piece of leather, i would try to boil it in water or wax. But experiment with boiling leather, it comes out quite nice depending on what your using it on. Especially if you carve into it first. Just a heads up if you try and boil something, it shrinks... ALOT!.. depending on how long you boil it for.
