Title: mythosaur skull leather patch build
Post by: leatherFett on Dec 24, 2013, 05:14 PM
OK this is how I make a mythosaur skull leather patch. This is my step by step way I make a leather patch. You can use this patch on your armor or a bag or jacket. You can make it out of thinner leather just don't tool/punch though the leather. I like working with the thiker leather and then shave down the back side making it thinner.

got some more to look at.
this is a order I had to fill for xmass but you see how it comes along.

step one wet leather
(https://scontent-b-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/1488651_10152050096683419_1369288291_n.jpg)

step two
(https://scontent-b-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/1480490_10152050217893419_354451272_n.jpg)

step three
(https://scontent-b-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/1463576_10152050227688419_1543732685_n.jpg)

step four
(https://scontent-b-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc1/575441_10152050252068419_231977658_n.jpg)

step five
(https://scontent-a-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/1468737_10152050411158419_648306283_n.jpg)

Nice Work!

What are you using to do the second pass on for the lines? they look a little thicker than a normal leather blade.

Hey thanks,
Please understand, I am self taught.....I do my leather working this way because it's all I know. With that I'm always open to new ways of doing leather working.

Ok on to step two: this is the blade I use to do all my leather cutting.
(https://scontent-b-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/551050_10152085654848419_1312855851_n.jpg)

I just cut deeper on the outside lines so the dye will go deeper. After I cut off the extra leather from the patch by cutting deeper it mak a cleaner edge for the patch

I learned with time, my first cut is light and then I cut deeper the next run.
I hope this helps

Loving the patches man. Spot on.

this is a new patch I just did to see if i could change things up a bit. Its the same outline but lots of different punches used and different ways to dye.

now the other patches are older work that I sold on ebay.

This is the Boba Fett white armor prototype patch with my spin on it.
MARK#2

MARK#1

I been trying to make little things people would like.

KEY holder thing-a-do!

How about a big skull patch for something.

Look'in Great Vod!

I am also pretty much self taught, so please don't take this as criticism. That blade is exactly what I use, I guess it just photos like a wider cut is all.

Lov'in the color play on the new photos! Keep it up!

Hi !
These are great. Bravo !  :D

Just a question : does the color resist to rain//water ?
Title: Re: mythosaur skull leather patch build
Post by: leatherFett on Jan 02, 2014, 12:54 PM
yes all my patches are color fast and sealed. I would not like to see you SCUBA dive with them but rain ok.

These are really great! I've been looking for ideas for the leather on my new girth belt and wondered where you got the template for the skull design?
Title: Re: mythosaur skull leather patch build
Post by: leatherFett on Jan 04, 2014, 04:01 PM
I just goggled it and look at a million pics. Then print them out...onto the light table and rework were its needed. I'm just using what I find and making it work. I have not got any custom orders with custom art work. But I have high hopes to do some cool one of a kind work ...the kinda work were you burn the templates after its made.

Later

Fantastic leather work! I want all of them! Especially loving how you're doing the little doodads too. I wonder how these could be incorporated into an armour set. Because these would definitely be a sweet addition! Where did you get your leather?? I might ask my friend for his leatherworking tools to try my hand at it ;)
