Another ‘Roman technique’ western style boot. Did a bit of fancy reveal and texture work followed by some gunstock orange stain and brown leather dye. Sealed with Shellawax and gently polished with a buffing wheel.

Now it’s party time and some Stampede Stomp!!!!!

Enjoy!

Great looking boot. Nice job on the finish too…. looks like it has a spit-shine.

Very nice. I have a pair of Tony Lama alligator boots that look a LOT like the upper of that boot. Great job.

Sorry LittlePaw this one is a bit small for you.
Thanks Jaykapur, I was thinking ‘Gator skin” from Tony Lama. Thanks for the comments.

As usual Roman your work can stand any scrutiny up as close as you like, beautiful detail.

It’s not a real boot? Jeepers that is one awesome piece of work!
