Time Worn Rust and Leather

 Second post today, what's the world coming too.  This is part of the on line course I'm doing with Andy Skinner.  1st pic is the Rust effect, I think it is pretty good, looks good and rusty to me.
 This one is the faux leather without embossing or wash.
This one is the faux leather embossed and with wash.  not too sure about this one.


  1. great time worn stuff, I like the embossed leather, its hard getting the full effect when they are on square card, when you use them on a full piece they really start to work.
    the rust has come out well, I love using that technique, it has so many uses.
    Hope your having fun on the course?, any ideas on a final piece yet?

  2. Oh, no I LOVE the embossed one - looks like the covers on those amazing ancient tomes they won't let you handle in libraries... the rust is great - haven't tried any of these yet (Oh no, getting behind I fear!)...

  3. Great samples!!!
    Sure looks rusty to me too :)

  4. I'm doing this course too and everytime I look at my leather I don't like it! Haven't been brave enough to put them on my blog though so well done you! Look forward to seeing some more of your work.

  5. Great samples Francesca, the rust looks realistic and your embossed leather will be great as a book cover.

  6. Great textures! Looks like you are having a lot of fun!waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
