Chest holster for client

Finished up a chest holster for a client. Used 9-10 oz. Hermann Oak for holster and 5-6 oz. For the straps and accent piece. Dyed it with light brown Feibing’s Pro dye, then coated with Satin Sheen 50/50 mixed with water.

Hand-stitched. Used 5mm stitching irons. Since I wanted a fairly smooth front, the retention was done by wet molding and shaping the back side.

An unseemingly complex piece, the combination of stitching, hardware, textures, coloring, and finish. Really cool. Have you tried the satin sheen in mixes other than 50/50? Such as 75/25? I’d be curious how much it affects the outcome.

This one looks great, and the Hermann Oak amazing. I’m sure the client will really like it
