Skill Level: All Skill Levels Welcome!

Course description: Loren Skyhorse will demonstrate how to apply color to your work. He will be using darkened oils and antiquing to achieve a rich and high contrast finish. His technique makes antiquing reliable and effortless. If you have completed the morning feather carving workshop (Carving Feathers Three Ways), you may finish your piece here and build it into a leather tray. If you have not participated in the morning workshop, you may bring an unfinished piece to complete. This workshop highlights Loren’s method of using darkened oils, antiquing and finish to achieve the “Skyhorse” look! Some materials donated by Hermann Oak Leather Company, Tandy Leather and The Fiebing Company.

Student Should Bring: Rubber gloves, paper towels, daubers, 1/2” paintbrush and a rotary hole punch.

Lisa and Loren Skyhorse live and work in Durango, Colorado. They have been a full-time saddle making team since 1974. Together, they have built over 1000 custom pleasure, trail and show saddles, as well as furniture, accessories and art pieces. Another passion of theirs is to build “collection saddles”, which are pieces of ride-able art. A recent project involved casting one of their collection saddles in bronze – twice. You can view their work on www.skyhorse.com.
