My friends and I are getting together for a camping trip to join ~10,000 of our closest friends next month and I decided to make up a game board personalized to our group for a game called Tablero da Gucci
The board is leather, scored, and the three pieces are sewn together with waxed thread. The shark is painted with acrylic paints, and the swords are Rub N’ Buff (have I mentioned recently how much I love that stuff!)
There are so many things about this project that I admire. To name only one, the colors of the various elements and how well they work together. I really must get some Rub N’ Buff. I like that your feline inspector also seems to approve after a very close look.
That cool detail helps keep the stitches on the top side flat since it pulls them the opposite way the leather is pulling it
I haven’t. I was trying to decide what to do since I don’t want to make it stiff, nor shiny. Got any specific suggestions?
Yes! I picked some up after someone on here waxed poetic, and then didn’t use it for probably 2 years. It goes on like paint, or shoe polish (depending on application tool) and then it dries to permanence without losing any of the luster. Plus it works on wood, leather, fabric, …anything that wax can get a grip on really 100% recommend.
That was a goal. I do have to appreciate that the leather (Apollo veg tan from Tandy - no longer available ) already came looking battered.
