Completed Wallet

I completed my wallet today. Last night, over several hours, I put the finish on it. And I laced it today, using a whip stitch.

I resisted it first then applied some antique gel. After that was “set” I applied some highlighter to only the carved and tooled area. Both were saddle tan. I then used some brown leather dye to darken the backgrounded areas.

For the final protective finish I used neutral shoe polish. Since all of my other products were water based, I find that the wax is the safest top coat. It does have to be reapplied every so often though, maybe every other month, depending on wear and usage.
