leather craft

My finished armour!! Made from leather and hand dyed (just the base coat as that’s all I’ve time for so far!!)
It fits me better than my mannequin though🙈 so hopefully I’ll get a few photos tomorrow at the convention, and then I need a photo shoot with my ponies and dogs 😍🦄🐶

Book of Paths

This book has structural differences from ones I’ve created in the past. With this one I tried many things I haven’t before and that led to many aesthetic imperfections. However I acheived the effect I was aiming for and that was a decoration representing choice and mainly how we can’t comprehend if we truly are in control of what is going to happen to us in life depending on these choices.

The book is decorated with interlaced borders and the spaces they create are filled with various other floral and geometric elements. The black in the tooling is acheived by coating the tools with carbon over a candle flame.

THANK YOU to everyone who showed up to my first stream and made it such a wonderful experience! We made Celica’s headband out of leather! (My wig still needs some styling in this photo, but you get the idea)

I’m so grateful for your support of my crafting endeavors. ❤ I’ll definitely keep streaming my progress and have a more regular schedule set up soon. In the meantime, I’m gonna go enjoy the rest of my birthday!

Here’s a little video of me making some foam into leather for my Raguna cosplay. By no means is this a tutorial, but I hope you all can use this for reference

Hey Tumblr friends! A lot of people asked me where I got my grimoire from, and well the truth is I made it. Since you wanted to get one I figured I could make some to sell and here they are. Right now I’m selling them on Etsy, two sizes and two different colors, all of them are genuine leather. You can add your initials or a lovely motif of your choosing. These journals are completely handmade.

Stay tuned for the giveaway!!!!

Finished the blind tooling on the third small journal. The design is a bit more brave than the previous two. Today was very cloudy and didn’t have time to finish everything I had in mind. Tomorrow all this tooling is going to be full of silver. Looking forward to it with feelings of excitement and a bit of fear.

Transparent wooden clutch DIY

Hello everybody!!!

Transparent clutches are starting to become more and more famous.So why not make one of your own?

-a metal lock clasp
-a belt
-a hammer
-nails
-a drill
Good luck!!

If you don’t want your all of your things to be visible there is a tutorial in the end of the video that shows you how to make a smaller embroidery wallet.

Made in a similar style as old Balkan manuscripts, this book is bound in light brown goatskin with cotton endbands around a hemp cord, this small blank journal could be the perfect companion on travels in nature or on a dark city night.
