Introduction: Creating Natural Looking Feathers in Leather

I've been asked a couple of times if I could do an instructional video about how I create my sculpted leather feathers. So I made my first ever instructional video.

Materials needed are:

6 oz vegetable tanned leather

A scalpel (size 3) with a new and really sharp blade

A stylus

A hair blade (optional, you could also use the scalpel instead)

A back grounding tool

Fiebings "Bag Kote" (or any other leather sealing component)
