These are the leather tools that I will be using on this project. From left to right; angle chisel, medium pear shader, small pear shader, small mottled back ground tool and large back ground tool.
I will start the “carving” process with the chisel. Once the chiseling is done I will shade the scrolls with the pear shaders. Then I will punch in the back ground. The final step of the carving process is the detail cuts, at least for this piece.
