Re: bone-tooling leather

Just another thought about Suhag's query...definitely try this! It might be
interesting to attempt putting some (dried and pressed) leaf materials onto
boards and then covering with lightly dampened paper and pressing with the
folder. If you used wheat paste with your paper, you'd get the dampness
needed for the forming of details, esp. with a soft wove paper. You could get
a similar embossed/debossed effect using sheets of light craft foam against
the work in the nipping press, particularly effective with the even, overall
pressure of the platen and boards.

I didn't mean to sound like you needed to wait seven years...that was about a
philosophy of teaching and learning.
