Uncle Charlie: Testing the Pattern

Continuing with the leatherwork, I cut and stitched on the three trim pieces, two for the eyes and one for the muzzle.
Stitching on the Trim


Here it is with the trim all on and the three cold cast pieces in place.
Once the leather is dry I will try it on to see if the straps are placed correctly. Then I will decide what else I want to do to it. I'm considering spikes and decorative straps.

  2. Hi Tom, what keeps your cold cast pieces in place ? Is it just the leather drying and shrinking around it or do you glue them or something ?
    Loving your work as always.
    Thanks, Liam.
