Real Leaf Tooling Patterns Volume II Book – Ed LaBarre
“Real Leaf” Tooling Patterns Volume II by Ed the “Bearman” LaBarre. Ed LaBarre has studied leaves and flowers in their natural setting in an attempt to design, carve and color them in a more realistic fashion in leather. Ed’s Volume II edition picks up where his first volume left off, providing instruction and techniques to help others carve leaves in the same way. Various tooling patterns involving the oak leaf, sycamore leaf, orchids and his unique “standing bear” design are provided. Carving patterns for a frame, gun rug, round box and front pocket wallet are also included. Carving realistic leaves is the main focus in Ed’s book.
