Unfortunately, this book is no longer in publication, so learning more about this leatherwork technique can be challenging. In this video, Jim Linnell shows, and explains, the basics of leather plug embossing and how to get incredible depth and dimension from your leatherwork.
Jim Linnell is a Stohlman Award winning leatherworking instructor who has dedicated his life to the advancement of the art form and the preservation of its history.
