Here are a few new tooled holsters. I did the POW-MIA holster as a test to see how small I can get the letters. I have never done raised letters that small before. I am going to paint this one and maybe the others.
What do you think?
Sweet, nice work. I like some tooling in my leather, but not a fan of painted.
Nice work, I like them just like they are.
I know that you stated earlier that you were new to holsters, but not leather making.
You certainly have talent with leather...very nice work!

Those look great, nice work.

Really like them (the flames too!).
As to the white paint for the MIA/POW, I understand as that's the standard look for that design. I also agree with others above that it looks great how it is. If you plan to offer it, perhaps making the paint optional? Just a thought (I bet you'll sell about 2 out of 3 plain).

Thanks for the comments guys. I will leave them alone for now. I can always paint them later when I have the time.
Here is some of my leather work painted.
The last 2 pictures show the contrast of my paint work. I use alot of pearls in my paint work. So the paint changes colors with the light.
Here is my other leather website. With alot of painted seats.
