A wallet for my wife for Valentine's




I used a combination of angelus leather paints, feibings leather dye, and an airbrush to make this for my wife.

The rose dye on the inside was a bit difficult with the blue on the front. It bled a little to the front so I had to go up to the stitch line.

Painting the flowers proved more difficult this time around. I wanted to use mostly dye, but once I messed up with a too dark of a dye I knew I had to do all leather paint.

These are her favorite flowers and I’ll be giving it to her when we go to X-Pot in Chicago for V day.

So does the heart represent a Crit or a Fumble? Lol. Just kidding. I’m assuming the 20 sided die indicates that you or she or both play some sort of roleplaying game.

Or maybe you just liked the pattern. Either way, that is a great looking wallet!

This is SO ADORABLE!!

I love the dye/paint job you did. Where did you find the graphic or did you draw that yourself too?

I searched google for some peonies and redrew a couple in more of my style. It’s a combination of a few different refrences. I then just drew a d20 in the center.
