Workshop Description: Airbrushing dye onto leather is a mystery for most leather crafters. Our time together will demystify the airbrush. You will learn how to disassemble/re-assemble, clean and most importantly how to use an airbrush. The class is built around how to put multiple colors of dye onto a single piece of leather forming a “sunburst”. In the class, we will tool a small knife sheath and use an airbrush to color the tooling with an appropriate sunburst. As part of class tuition each participant will receive an airbrush from the German company, Harder & Steenbeck, to keep. A knife that fits the sheath we will make will be available for purchase.

Materials to bring: Stamping stone, maul, bevelers (regular and steep), shader, backgrounder, and swivel knife. A basic knowledge of tooling is recommended.

Workshop Instructor: John owned his own insurance agency and maintained an active interest in leather work for more than 40 years. He stumbled into airbrushing while trying to learn how to dye a sunburst. He discovered there was almost nothing on You Tube or elsewhere on how to use an airbrush when dyeing leather. He’s been teaching his introduction to airbrushing workshops at all the Leather Crafters shows, writing for the Journal, and can also be found manning the Spraygunner booth out on the vendor’s floor.

Workshop Sponsors: The Fiebing Company, Leather Machine Co., LLC, Renia USA, and Tandy Leather.
