A hand-tooled leather skull.
This brooch starts out as a flat piece of leather, before the design is sketched out, applied to the damp leather and then carved into it. The details are then tooled into the leather using special stamps. When the leather has dried, acrylic leather paint is applied, and sealed.
A brooch back is stuck to the back, with another piece of leather. Finally the edges are finished and sealed.
2 3/8inches x 1 7/8inches.
Each piece is slightly different as they are handmade.
