Australian Leather Carving
Size: 8.4" x 11"
Peter Main’s friendship with Al and Ann Stohlman motivated him to start teaching leathercraft classes all over Australia. Peter Main has such a passion to share his experience, to teach, and to inspire others, that it was only natural to take his mastery to print!
The Stohlmans wrote the Forward to this book way back when it was first published, what an honor!
The following is an excerpt from that Forward:
“… This book features all Australian flora in colour. There are designs for a variety of eucalyptus, gum nuts, leaf shapes, capsules and flowers. Many of the patterns are designed to fit billfolds, keycases, belts, purses, and more. Corner designs are adaptable to fit most any project.
These designs are shown in both Inverted and Regular style carving. All have been masterfully coloured to show their versatility. Step-by-step illustrations and dye formulas are given to clearly show each phase of the work. Pictorial pages are included as well as step-by-step applique techniques.
We highly recommend this book for amateur or professional alike. This will increase your knowledge and your skills in carving, stamping and colouring leather. And …it will awaken you to the beauty of Australian designs …and give you fresh ideas for creating new patterns of your own design.
Al and Ann Stohlman”
