The main focus of this workshop will be learning techniques for more realistic carving, brush-dyed shading and antiquing. Several techniques in adding depth and dimension to your carvings will be demonstrated. The next morning, you will assemble and finish the cover. Materials donated by Fiebing’s and Hermann Oak Leather Co.

Materials to Bring: Figure carving tools (bevelers, matters, shaders, lifter bevelers, veiners, modeling spoon, triangle beveler, swivel knife, strop, maul/mallet, and a stamping stone).
