Re: [BKARTS] Tree Calf Leather



There's always things to consider. Another is the leather itself, i.e.
finish. Cheap leathers, and some expensive ones, are often "spray painted."

Just experiment. Best way to learn what works and doesn't. If one keeps
notes it'll help determine the why's.

leather thereby distorting and blurring the pattern.
