Thread: Charity shop find!

    Charity shop find!

    Just thought I'd share this as I saw them in a charity shop and couldn't resist! A box of 50+ leather embossing punches with gold and blue leaf sheets inculded! Best 5 I've spent in months. Now I just need to learn to use them!

    Thanks FF. I got to wondering. They seem scorched. Does anyone know if you're ment to tool leather hot or cold? I literally have no idea! They look to have been a fairly expensive set at some point. Well made etc

    As far as I know you wet the leather then tool it cold, heat makes leather shrink and go brittle
