meh...I'm far from what people commonly call an "artist"

To me "art" is a process...one that I happen to believe is just a certain set of things to do, in a prescribed manner, in which the outcome is aesthetically favorable or pleasing.

I kind of think of it this way...

1. Get a picture in your mind of what you want as an end result. In this case, a leather hunter Sporran.
2. Get leather and make a paper pattern of the parts.
3. Trace a pattern onto the leather and cut it/them out. This includes 3D motifs like the Triquetra on the boss.
4. wet and stamp the leather, making sure that one strike isn't any deeper than another [unless that's intended].
5. Stain the leather.
6. sew it together.

All that's left to do is put the snap on and seal it with the semi gloss coating.

Default New Pics!!

I had the occasion to wear it today. Sadly, it was for a fellow Officer's funeral.
