The lightly ghosted skulls are a nice touch. Very subtle.

Nice work man.

The skull one is nice. I like the ghost effect in the background. What did you use to get the bone color for the skull? In the past I have use white cova with a brown high-light over top, but have had trouble with the highlight rubbing off the cova.

royale,

The skull is the leather's natural color. I do not remember if I used Super Sheen or RTC as a resist but I coated it with 2 coats of resist. Then airbrushed the background light brown, then airbrushed the skulls. Then a top coat of super sheen, antique gel to accent the cuts. Then the whole thing was coated with Neatlac to seal it.

Dirty D, Thanks on the bracelet. That was a first time deal, I learned alot the next one will be much nicer. Thinking of doing a black one after I get caught up a bit.

Thanks to all others who have commented on my work.


Allen--Big Papa

Wallet on the left is Leather covered in a suit material. I used the material once as a liner in a "sophisticated" biker wallet (long story), so I decided to put some dress clothes on a wallet. Underneath the material is cowhide. Laced in black kangaroo.

On the right is a bison hide wallet. A minimalist wallet that lays very flat. The bison has a very soft supple hand and awesome texture. Distressed cognac colored kangaroo lace.

Both are standard bi-fold with 6 pocket interiors, the left is cowhide interior and the right is mission grain pig.
