Tooling and Carving Leather

The for tooling and carving. The leather for tooling and carving is a type of leather, usually vegetable tanned, which lends itself easily to notch, i.e. to taking and keeping certain traits once a pointed object is passed over the skin with strength or a die has engraved with a certain amount of pressure a drawing. The practice of the tooling is much easier than you might think and the results can give great satisfaction. All you need are some basic tools: a vegetable tanned leather, a sponge with a little of water and tools to engrave that are available at very low prices. For example you might want to create a simple leather purse, a wallet, a belt or a keychain, and as subsequent step, create a fancy pattern on the surface, the result will amaze you! With the tooling technique you can customize the leather, getting unique and inimitable leather objects: think to a wallet given as a birthday gift engraved and customized by you, it will be something unique, and most importantly you will have fun doing it! A note on the skins: the vegetable tanned leather is the best for tooling, this is because the skin fibers, in this type of tanning, remain more open; this means that if you get wet the skin with water it absorbs it and becomes suitable for printing and engraving. A note on the tools: there is no need to spend large amounts of money, it is enough to have a swivel knife, a tool for backgrounds and an hammer of some sort. A note on drawings: be creative, take a cue from google or Pinterest, people tend to always draw leaves and flowers.
