Yesterday at my mailbox was my shipment of kangaroo skins from Midwest Whips. It had two natural tan, two glazed white and two matte white skins.
I’m very excited to make something out of the white kangaroo. I’ve never used good kangaroo that was white. I’ve used the chrome tanned stuff that got a coating over the top, but never the veg tanned stuff. The chrome tanned was horrible!
Also at my mailbox yesterday was the Luis Ortega book:
I’ve just flipped through this book and taking a peek at a few of the pictures and it’s amazing to see Ortega’s work!
Yesterday I started work on a six foot Indy Style Bullwhip. I cut out the two bellies, but that’s all. I’ve got a full day of performing today, so I don’t expect much more work to get done on it until Monday.
