INVERTED LEATHER CARVING CAN BE CLASSIFIED INTO THREE GROUPS;
1 -- Silhouette Stamping;
2 -- Inverted Carving;
3 -- Rough-Out Carving.
Stamping is the simplest and easiest of the group. It consists of cutting only the outline of the design and beveling and matting down the design within these lines. Silhouette stamping offers the craftsman, beginner or professional, unlimited uses of design and self expression and will open a whole new field of leather carving and stamping enjoyment.
Very few stamping tools are required as the entire operation consists of matting down the leather inside the design outlines. Proper Silhouette designing should be of fine with few, heavy overlapping segments or large, open areas requiring excessive matting.
Carving differs from the regular raised carving, as we know it, in that the design itself is depressed
[ not raised ] being beveled and stamped down inside the outlines. The background areas remain raised and untouched. Just in reverse of the usual beveling and stamping methods.
Carving is actually no different from the regular methods either raised, inverted, or silhouette. Only the effect is different in that the design is carved and in the flesh side. Of the leather, rather then the customary grain side.
