Two Tone Bullwhip

Two Tone Bullwhip

I don’t know if I ever posted pictures of this whip.  I made it at least a couple of months ago and it’s been hanging on a peg.  This two tone bullwhip was part of my early experiments with hand dying the kangaroo.  I cut the set then folded back every other strand and dyed the rest as a group.

This bullwhip’s handle was my first and only attempt (so far) at fancy plaiting on the handle. This bullwhip was made from a EXTRA thick kangaroo hide that I had found.  So the strand drop in the picture below really stands out.  The seam on this whip turned out pretty straight.
