The Belt Interior
After attaching the 'tips' to the back belt strap, I glued a 2oz veg-tan liner to the completed belt. Once the pieces were joined together, I used my glass burnisher to rub the interior and make sure that both pieces made good contact. I then applied some of my casing solution to the liner and allowed it to set in. Using a nice simple pattern, I carved the design on the liner using my swivel knife only. Barry King border swivel knife blade and cut (lightly) a border around the interior of the liner. I allowed the liner to dry a bit before I proceeded to dye the border perimeter using some Fiebing's Black Oil dye.
