I suppose it works well enough, I haven't got anything to compare it to. I mix it 50/50 with water.

If you use a water based dye you can thin it out as you go just by dipping your brush.  You can probably do the same trick with an oil based dye by using mineral spirits or whatever dilutes the dye.
Thanks, I thought it would be something of that nature.

That'a an interesting mix of elements, and they all work together. Looks good.

Nice neat work. Making a Pouch with a gusset ain't easy.

You are not wrong! I have picked up a couple of tricks for pre-forming gussets and it makes a world of difference.

I've molded ends over a block of wood to shape them first. On full wrap-arounds, I've put them in damp so they'll take on the shape needed as you fit them.

Nice work on these, too.  Cool

Very nice work, CQ. I like the basket weave on the box. Did you use a stamp for that or make it with a bevel? It looks really good.

Thanks all! The box was pretty easy to do actually, and that is a pretty standard Tandy Basket Weave stamp. Been thinking about doing free hand basket weave, then I get a headache and grab the stamp Wink There was also a sling that went with that box, basket weave and Oak Leaf, but y'all have already seen my slings. And I am still finishing a shoulder holster for a .357 Blackhawk, so that will be posted soon.

The knives were a special order from my Pops, who is apparently pimping me out. For years, he would show me the easy open knife case he had made during his Carney days. So, I made him a nice one for his Birthday last year, and one to use as a template, in case he felt like making more. He sold the template one, and had an order for 2 more. The big knife, was for another friend of his. All I got on that was, "It just has to be cool". Gee, that helped a lot! I think I nailed "cool".

I still have 2 slings and shell carriers to do, all for the fella who ordered the G22 holster and the shoulder holster... and I have to redo the patch on the Bianchi Buscadaro belt. Apparently, he needed more than 3" added. That is a P.I.T.A. that can wait till next year Wink

I suspected that was a stamp. I have several BW stamps I made years ago. One is very similar to that one.
