Project by Roman - THE BOOTMAN posted 06-16-2015 07:22 PM 1065 views 0 times favorited 14 comments Add to Favorites Watch

I received a commission to carve a lady’s high heel boot. This piece will be a gift to a person who has hiked around the world and is also a classy lady! I added a floral pattern (blackberry motif) using a pyrography tool and high lighted the design with acrylic paint. The stain on the remainder of the boot is ‘gunstock orange’ from min wax.
When hiking with these even the bears turn around to have a good look! Enjoy!

Absolutely beautiful Roman! Before I read the description I thought that it looked like a lady’s boot. What is the overall size of this creation?

Beautiful work. Without a description, it would take someone a bit to figure out this wasn’t leather work.
