Opinions Needed: EmbellishMINTS...


 

F:  Hey, Quartermain....

Q:  Whaddya want, fag? Leave me alone...

F: Why do cowboys wear belts with big buckles?

Q: I dunno... why?

F: Because they are monuments to dead pricks! HAR HAR HAR!!!

Q:  GTFO... please....

So I am making another belt because the one I made 7 years ago is about done... and I am really happy with the way this one is going. The finish is supposed to make it look like it's 100 years old and spent the last 20 out in the rain. I am going with a simple low key ranger buckle and maybe a metal keeper that I dug out of my plunder in down in the Reclusium. 

I also found some leather spots and decided to try them out on a scrap. Whadda you guys think of that? Ain't gonna lie, getting them in straight is a bear... you're working with natural materials, and being a thumb fingered harelipped retard doesn't help either. I was laughing at the pro on OyTube - he pooched one of his and just shrugged. "Machines will get these perfect, but these projects are hand made, and gaffs like this just add character..."

I was far too polite to poop in the comments, but the gaff he did made mine look like craftsmanship, HAR HAR HAR!!!! (Now that I've said that, I have waved the red flag in front of Darwin and Murphy and will be paying for my smarminess shortly...)
Y
Should I go with the spots and add some character? Or keep it simple? Your two cents are sincerely appreciated

    1. I’d second that. It’s your monkey, dress it up how ever you wish. (But my gut says keep it simple, S....)

  2. Keep it simple, Glen, lest people think you're from Queerbec!

  3. Leather spots???? Next you will be wearing a bowler hat. People will start talking to you in french.... Maybe some ass-less chaps with pink inlays and white fringe for you scooter. You know it might be a problem when Quartermain gives you a tube of KY Jelly and wolf whistles you. But, what Judy said.

  4. If it does the job it is intended to do properly, it does not need decoration. It shines on its own accord.

  5. I’m of the keep it simple camp. Don’t ID yourself in case of an altercation. I have no tats, or stickers on my vehicle.
