Photo Transfer Onto Leather

Wayne Christensen

Friday, 03/01/19, 8:00am – 12:00pm Jerome Room, Prescott Resort

All skill levels welcome!

During this workshop, you will apply a photo onto vegetable-tanned tooling leather, following the technique of working with an already transferred photo to remove the paper backing, bevel and border stamp it, and with instruction on how to color and finish the picture at home. This workshop focuses on acquiring the technique rather than creating a finished project, as this technique can be applied to leatherwork in a myriad of ways.

Materials to Bring: Scotch tape, stamping stone, mallet, wing divider, swivel knife, strop, modeling spoon, checkered beveler, and a small border stamp (approximately 3/8” wide).

Wayne Christensen

Wayne has been doing leatherwork for over 30 years, when a neighbor gave him a 55-gallon drum full of scrap leather. He went to his local Tandy Leather store and bought a small beginner’s tool set and received a lot of encouragement and help from the manager. He took some classes from masters like Bob Beard, Peter Main, Tony Laier and Chuck Smith. Wayne turned leather work into a full time business in 1990 and start teaching five years later. He now offers classes 5 nights a week at his store. Wayne was awarded the Al Stohlman Award for Achievement in Leathercraft in 2013.
