BASIC LEATHER CARVING PROCEDURE PAGE 3

CAMOUFLAGE TOOL

9. Also called Cams. Again practice on scrap before stamping your project. The tool is positioned, then tapped with the mallet. Do not use a metal hammer on leather stamps as this will ruin them. Study the photocarve design. This tool can be used tilted left, right, forward, backward, and vertical to achieve a variety of patterns. 10. On stems and scrolls, the tool is generally used along the lines. In this process it is tilted towards the line. Note that each line of this stem / leaf has been done. A single stamp has also been done to the center of the scroll.
11. Cams are sometimes used to texture flower petals. When used for petals, the tool is usually held vertically, but tilted slightly forward and stamped progressively from the flower center outward.
