Burnishing our leather edges is going to slick the edges of our leather project. Just look at the edges of a holster, knife sheath or a high-end handbag. We will notice gorgeous, rounded edges that are slicked, and many times have an EDGE PAINT or edge coat added. A leather burnisher is an easy tool to purchase and will add a professional level to the edges of our leather project.

The Leather Element: Antique Finishes
In this video, Chuck goes over antique finishes and how we can use them to enhance the look of our leather. The primary goal of an antique finish is to age the leather and make it look broken in and well-loved. Antiques are also a great option when you want to make your stamping and tooling stand out! There are so many different ways we can use these finishes to take our projects to the next level. If you have a question or idea for a Leather Element, comment below!
