Product Description

There are so many products available to the leather worker that it is difficult to know what to use or when to use it. Bobby designed this 3-hour demonstration to address the use of a variety of those products. General topics covered will include the use of spirit and water based dyes, acrylic colors, liquid highlighters and paste antiques. Through the use of close-up cameras and a large screen TV, he will share the techniques and sequences that he uses to produce professional-looking finishes. Discussion will include: oiling, brush selection, dyeing tooled backgrounds, dyeing edges, applying acrylic colors, applying paste antique, finish coats and sealants. Throughout the demonstration he will address a variety of products from various manufacturers, alternative applications and the successful methods that he’s learned to use over the years. This demonstration covers a lot of ground and is one of Bobby’s most popular workshops!

Materials to bring: Note taking materials. Cameras are welcome.
