Cutting in, Beveling & Bar grounding

Cutting in, Beveling & Bar grounding


Of the many steps involved in floral leather tooling these three will make or break the outcome of a piece.  Beveling is a subtle skill and attendees will gain a greater ability to walk the beveler for smooth toolmark free results.  Gordon has a few bargrounding tricks to share also that that can greatly improve your background work.  

Though not required for this class, taking the morning session, Sharpening the Swivel Knife, and Methods of its Use for Smooth Control, will prepare you to get the most out of this session.
