Hand-Tooling the Pattern


The Camouflage Tool

Custom Western Belts are artfully hand-crafted to your order.  There are numerous tools used in the hand-tooling process.  The fifth tool applied is the camouflage tool.  It is applied to the flower, stems and leaves of each pattern.  The tool looks like a sunburst and blends portions of the pattern together and is used to create the seed pod on each flower.  The visual impact of the tool by itself is not that significant, but is an important step in creating the overall finished look.  Click here to see a video of the hand-tooling process.
