Tandy Leather Warehouse in Elgin, IL
Although the color screams out and catches the eye, I deviate towards natural tones and vegetable tan leather which carries a off white surface.
Veg. Tan leather - is great for textural details such as painted surfaces, leather dying, and my most cherished favorite is when you soak the leather within water for a few seconds, it becomes limp to the touch. At this moment you may mold the leather around an selected object and when it drys it becomes a hardened shell. This technique is something which allows you to think outside the box.
Hours Later… Too much money spent… But amazing materials to work with…
Back to the studio for deliberation.
Onto the next project...
