Alex,

Do you use a heavy foam to press the leather down onto (and into) your form?

Hi, Dan

I don`t use a heavy foam. I use bonefolder, PVA glue and some stamping tools for matting from Tandy Leather Factory. I buy some basic set for testing. It`s good and usefull tools.

That's a lot of work with a bonefolder, but that's how I do everything now. I read somewhere (can't remember where now) that you can lay a piece of heavy foam over your leather/pva/form and put it into a press. I've been meaning to try it but haven't had the chance yet.

Alex,
Do you heat your Tandy punches or just use a hammer with them?

Hi Dan,

I do not use heavy foam because I don`t drop the whole leather to cover.
With foam I do not got good details, the leather is not enough strech for it.
I doing differently - until the skin goes down piece by piece draws the details with bone folder and after with the additional tools.

Tools from TLF is new for me. I have tried them several times with wet leather and the results are satisfactory. Nothing serious with them, I made, just experiments. I use them exclusively on cold with hammer.
I made one book with this tools but result is bad. Sad
I sent a picture photographed on quickie because I was the book under the arm.


Best regards,
Alexander Solarov

Okay - cold tools on wet leather. I'll try that.
