Leaves of Leather

A trio of pieces for the leather shop, these leaves are hand-cut and tooled from a very thick piece of leather for extra texture and depth - the results were a lush and gorgeous leaf that demanded the richest of colors.
I used a new technique and created the deep green leaves through a combination of dye and antique.
The green and the red are the result of layers of color: so true and endless!
