Exploring details and leather
I decided to try another leather just to make sure my choice was correct. The black leather was far too stretchy and didn’t suit the style of the portrait well. The brown leather held it’s shape very well and didn’t have such a high sheen on it. I decided to stick with the brown. Whilst experimenting I concerntrated on adding details to the designs. On them i attached beads to see what it would look like. The outcome was positive but I felt that beading would have been decorating for the sake of decorating – it wasn’t necessary. Therefore, I have gone against adding details.
