The Wolf

Kathy Flanagan 

Wednesday, February 28, 1 pm - 5 pm

‘Tis Annex Art Education Building, Room 103

Skill Level: All skill levels welcome!

If you have problems with hair, you will want to take this class. On a 5” x 7” piece of leather, we will be tooling a wolf’s face. The fur on this piece will be completed with a stamping technique. Not only will we be studying the fur, but also the facial features, including an open mouth. The picture will be completed with a simple, clear finish. Supplies donated by Hermann Oak Leather Co., Fiebing’s and Renia USA.

Materials to Bring: Stylus, modeling spoon, mallet, swivel knife, strop, tooling surface, bevelers (various sizes, smooth and checkered), pear shaders (flat and smooth, various sizes), undercut beveler, backgrounder A98 or similar, figure beveler F895, F902 or F902-2, matting tools (checkered), and hair tools F916 and F917.
