BASIC LEATHER CARVING PROCEDURE PAGE 8

BACKGROUNDER TOOL

28. The backgrounder is used to matt down the background areas. Study your pattern to identify background areas - these will usually be small areas between the leaves, scrolls, and flowers that have been beveled all the way around. 29. Available in a variety of shapes and patterns, the most popular is a small teardrop shape with a fine checkered pattern (A104). This tool will permit backgrounding in the tightest ares.
30. The tool is used around the perimeter of each background area. 31. The center of each background area is done by walking the backgrounder across it. To obtain the best results, rotate the tool while walking it to get an even texture.
