This spring and summer seems like the busiest time this year. Just one of the projects I’m working on is this year’s TCAA saddle. In my visits with my co-conspirator Scott Hardy we came up with this idea of a dyed border that would frame up the saddle. It is always an anxious process when you pick up a brush, dip it into alcohol based dye and hope for the best on the leather. So far no major catastrophes.
