Step 4c- Background

When starting the back ground, punch in around the cuts first then punch in the rest of the area needing background texture.  Make sure the tool that you are using is perpendicular to the leather.

The leather will start to dry out as you are tooling it. Simply wet the leather to keep it damp. You will know when it is too dry because the imprint will not be as sharp.
