where I could do the skull then each wing, but lining that up.. Goodness! i did two, messing one up in between, and called it. So those two guys have the only large ones.
So anyway, had been thinking for a few months about leather painting, and had looked into again, and found out that Cova Color Paints are highly recommended for leather painting. So i ordered an 8 pack and a pink and turquoise. Also recommended were Taklon brushes. I ordered from Hawke's Leather on EBay. They shipped fast, and the paints and brushes are excellent. I also ordered an assortment of leather jackets and vests on EBay, for my "canvases" I really couldn't wait to get started. I already had a leather jacket from DH to start on, so when the paints got here i started the next day. Did a version of "Life Needs More Green Lights" and put my Chopper in the image. So this is the result of my first painted leather:
I really was happy with how this came out - most of all the bike rendering, so I was certainly inspired to move forward. I had already picked out another image of a Native American girl and a wolf that I wanted on a jacket. By then a perfect jacket had come in to do it on. Nice buttery soft kidskin leather.
This was great leather to work with, and i thought this one came out kewl, too. better than my first one... or maybe just different...
So, next wanted to make a vest. Thought I could make one for our trip out west when we go. So wrangled my bike into it and came up with this:
So that's where I am for now. I am currently making one for DH like the Monument Valley one above, with his bike in it. I got it started today. So far so good. :) I have another one I want to do for myself with wolves howling at the moon. Did you know some painted coats are going for hundreds of dollars on EBay? Gee that would be nice to offer some art on EBay. Or custom Patches. :)
