We are selling these pieces as seconds because they have more marks / scars than usual. They are still very useable, and offer a cost effective way to get started in leather tooling and carving!
This is an A4 sized piece of lightweight vegetable tanned leather, free from dye and grease and 1.2 - 1.4mm thick.
It's quite lightweight for a tooling leather, so less suitable for carving, but great for embossing and dyeing.
*As veg tan tooling leather is so pale in colour and has no surface finish, it's important to have clean hands and tools when working with it, so it doesn't pick up unwanted marks. Once you have finished your decoration, the surface can then be finished with Fiebings Resoline or Tan Kote, to give it a protective outer coating.
