BASIC LEATHER CARVING PROCEDURE PAGE 10
|36. Modeling tools, or modelers as they are often called are used for a variety of things and accordingly come in a variety of shapes.
For most floral carving a dished spoon style is all that is needed.
||37. Correct mistakes - If you have been sloppy with the stamping tools, it is sometimes possible to burnish out the pattern with the spoon end of the tool. Shown here is an overlapping beveler stamp onto the border that can be smoothed with the modeler.
|38. Although not essential, slightly rounding the edges of the design elements will enhance their appearance. Take care not to round them too much as this will reduce the effect of the beveling.
||39. The design is now done and should be dyed and finished with your choice of products following the manufacturer's directions.
