A hand-tooled leather Christmas star.
This piece started off as a flat piece of veg-tanned leather. I then carve and stamp the design into the leather, before it is dyed. This piece was dyed red, and then a fine sweep of gold, acrylic, leather paint was applied to the top for a festive feel. This piece was mounted onto a gold piece of chrome-tanned leather. The edges were sealed with black edge paint.
The star is hung from a piece of ribbon.
