Product Description

Learn the techniques Ed uses to achieve his signature style realistic colors during this 3-hour demonstration. Ed will start with a pre-tooled carving of his realistic leaves and show you how to bring them to life with color! You’ll be able to observe the nuances of layering color, mixing the dyes, how to shadow, highlight and otherwise make the design more life-like. Questions are encouraged!

Materials to bring: Note taking materials and a camera.

Ed ”BearMan” LaBarre’s first connection with leather was in 1967 at age 13, in the leathercraft shop at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland. He later worked at McLelland’s Saddle Shop in Florida and learned from Bob Dellis, who encouraged Ed to make tools. His son, Beary, now runs BearMauls. Check out his website:
