The Leather Element: Making a Fall Pumpkin Mouse Pad

Miriam Schlabach |

In this week’s The Leather Element video, Chuck makes a fun pumpkin mouse pad. The face of the mousepad is carved, tooled and painted and then a suede backer is added to keep the mousepad in place. The carved pumpkin can also be used as fall decor. The dye ratio for the orange color is 4 yellow to 1 red Fiebing’s Pro Dye
Chuck uses a swivel knife and a beveler to carve and tool the pumpkin and the leaves.
