Workshop Description: Using an airbrush is just about the finest way there is to put dye onto leather. The reason? Because the crafter is in control of the amount of dye going onto the project and not using a dauber or piece of sheepskin. With an airbrush, it is easy to put so little amount of dye onto the leather that it can hardly be seen and then build up from there. HOWEVER, the leather crafting world by and large has almost no knowledge of how to use this wonderful instrument!

In this workshop John will demystify an airbrush by taking one apart and re-assembling it. There will be a practice session where we will explore the practicality of the multi-colored “sunburst”. Finally, we will tool a small knife sheath and use an airbrush to enhance the tooling. (Knives for the sheath will be available for purchase.) Lastly, we will take the airbrush apart once more and clean it. (Being familiar with disassembling and reassembling makes cleaning the airbrush much easier.) An airbrush will be supplied for each student to use in class with the option to purchase afterward. NOTE: Filtration air mask and canister is not required for the class but is HIGHLY recommended. They are available on Amazon. The canister you should acquire is the Pink P-100 from 3M.

Materials to bring: Please bring note taking materials and the following tooling equipment: tooling slab, swivel knife, strop, maul, bevelers, shaders, and backgrounders of your choice. Filtration air mask and canister is not required, but highly recommended. See NOTE above.

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