    Hi John, I use fiebings leather dyes and finishing products so its quite permanent. Its a bit of a double edge sword as it means if I make a mistake I have to bin it and start all over again.
    I like to wear the cotton glove when sewing it on the tube just to keep it all nice and clean.

    I can imagine the beautiful diverse reptiles you have in your country Peter, we only have a few in the UK but I find them fascinating little critters.
    Christine, those few that we do have are mostly politicians though.

    Only dangerous snakes we have are the ones with two legs.

    A really nice pen, very different from the usual pens.

    Here's a commissioned Sirocco pen I made this week.
    The leather is veg tan with a hand painted lizard. It was nice to put my tiny artist brushes to good use again

    Normally I would have sent a PM to Christine to say thank you, but I would like to say it publicly.

    I commissioned the pen as a wedding anniversary pen for my wife in July to celebrate our 38 th. As a result of the Covid outbreak we were having major postal problems in France for deliveries because the post office was quarantining the post for weeks . So I asked her to make it early and send it early in the hopes that it would make it here in time for the anniversary. Well sods law kicked in and it arrived today a couple of weeks earlier that I expected!!!! So guess what?? well because I am especially vulnerable, she (my wife) has borne the brunt of all the outside shopping and working whilst I have been sheltering, so I just though I would give it to her as token of my love and appreciation ( blast I will have to find another anniversary present!!).

    Anyway she loved it and the picture was just like the lizards that we watch every sunny morning at breakfast on the wall of our veranda.

    So a huge thank you to Christine it was perfect and I have to say very much better than the photos show. It is just so tactile .

    AND Happy Birthday for tomorrow 15th May Christine (Leatherlass), may you have many more
    Enjoy Life you only get it once and there is no Apprenticeship
