I was so excited to receive my custom embossing die! I had one made so that I could incorporate my logo on the pieces that I make. I ordered it from Artfire.com from a really friendly guy named Steve at CustomMadeStuff. He was extremely helpful, has a quick turn around time and offers a lifetime guarantee on his products. I can’t wait to start using my new embossing die!
To emboss leather, the leather needs to be fairly wet. The die gets positioned on the leather in the desired area and then is hammered several times. Sometimes it helps to clamp the leather and die together after being hammered to create a deeper emboss.
