Basic Leather Working : How to Add Texture to Your Leather Coaster


So, after kind of all your beveling and your
shading and kind of you get your 3D aspect together, I hope that you can see this kind
of with the, kind of reflections, how it’s kind of got a nice 3D surface to it. I mean
it’s kind of sort starting to look like a piece of a saddle or something like that.
Now, one of the last things you can do is just sort of start making decorative cuts,
and these won’t get beveled. So, for example, this is kind of like a flower, so maybe I
want to make like a little, just kind of a gentle, maybe like a little mid, mid rib or
kind of mid vein down each of these petals, so that’s kind of what I’m doing now. Kind
of with the knife, kind as sort of a last stage. This just adds kind of another little
layer of, kind of detail complexity to it. Again, I’m not going to bevel these out. These
are final little decorative cuts I’m doing. So for that reason they don’t have to be that
deep. See, so now I have a little line in those. I can also do some things like, I don’t
know, like maybe on a, kind of on one of these stems here, maybe I’ll do it on this stem.
I can start just making some little, tiny kind of decorative cuts on the edge here like
this. See, how I’m doing? That gives it some kind of texture, kind of like a little stem
texture to it there. So, I’ll kind of maybe carry that out about this far. There we go.
Little decorative cuts there. Again, this is something you do in the very last stage
okay? None of that gets beveled out. Here, I’ll do some more of it over here, and kind
of just gives it some, just more detail, more kind of texture to it. Oh maybe I’ll do maybe
a little bit kind of right here.
