Sheridan College – W 208
Tuesday 05/16 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
All skill levels welcome!
Workshop Description: How to use an airbrush for coloring leather is a mystery to many leather crafters. An airbrush for student use in class will be provided. We will take the airbrush apart and re-assemble it in order to demystify this wonderful tool. We will then proceed to color two items to familiarize ourselves with how to use the AB. The AB will most likely become your most preferred way of adding color to finished projects. Students will complete a small project, such as a rounder or key fob (see photo under Project Photos).
Highly recommended: Please consider taking Airbrushing on Tooled Leather, where we will tool a small knife sheath and use the airbrush to color the tooled leather. A not-to-miss add-on to the basic class.
Materials to bring: Basic leather tools and stamping stone.
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 Spray Gunner booth out on the vendor’s floor.
Workshop Sponsors: Hermann Oak Leather Co. and The Fiebing Company
