"Regency III" Clutch Purse

A clutch purse like the one here is a great example of how leather art can take on many different moods. The antique stain was used first, then the green and red dyes were allowed to blend into the stain, giving the piece a mellow feel. The normally bright colors of the dyes are subdued by the stain. If acrylic paints were used on the flowers, the effect would be striking to the point of overwhelming. Another variation would be to dye the flowers and resist them to the full strength of the stain, giving another attractive feeling to it.
