Pyrography Leather Boot Belt Project, Part One

Step 11: Burnishing the Edge

Gum Tragacanth is applied along the edge of the belt leather using a cotton swab.  Briskly rub the dampened side with an edge slicker to burnish the leather.  Gum Tragacanth polishes the edge, and slicks the fine leather fibers to the side.












Step 12: Checking the Fit of the Buckle

Slide the buckle latch through the buckle slot in the leather.  The latch bar of the buckle rests on the back side of the belt blank.






Roll the leather end over the latch to the back of the boot belt.  With a pencil mark the edge of both pieces of leather as a guideline to where you will fold and score the turn for the buckle.
