All skill levels welcome!

In this demonstration, Bobby will share the techniques he uses to filigree tooled backgrounds on projects such as purses, organizers, briefcases, belts, headstalls and other similar projects. With the use of close-up cameras and a large screen TV, he will filigree the background area of a tooling pattern and apply a colored background material. He will also demonstrate the method he uses to create an exotic inlay on the same type of projects. Discussion will include the type and weight of the leathers used, coloring, finishing, cutting tools and gluing. Time permitting, there will be an open Q & A session where Bobby will answer questions regarding any subject which may interest the class.
