Antique effect watch band

Another watch band. I decided to do the traditional buckle thing but I am not sure I like it better than the ones done with snaps.

I used the Ecoflo Gel Antique to colour the leather. I wasn't really happy with it but the issues did give it a worn antique appearane that seems to work.

By the time you account for the tabs to mount the watch and the mounting of the strap sections, there isn't much space left to showcase any tooling.

All in all, it is wearable and the issues did lead to a look that seems vintage, so I am happy with it.

New Watch Cuff

I was getting tired of my old watch and wanted a new look. This is what I came up with. As always, there are things I would do differently another time, but it was a fun project.

I think there will be more of these in my future, different colours, textures.......
