Round One! Dyed Leather, Back.
So, until my next batch of leather shows up in the mail, I'm carving and dying the pieces I already have cut. Carving has actually been a lot of fun so far and dying takes no time at all. It's like slapping on a quick coat of paint. Course carving takes some patience as to not screw it up. You can rub out some mistakes, but carve too deep and it becomes much harder to undo. I still need to dye the back and sides, but just wanted to lay the pieces together to get an idea of how it'll look. Oh, yea, and the leather hole puncher is great! I really thought it was going to be a pain in the butt to get through the leather, especially since it's 12oz. It turned out to be as easy as a hole puncher through paper. =D
