    Default making leather fronts

    so the tannery in my hometown shut down a few years ago and i recently was given some leather that was left there and thought i might give a try at making a shield for my 1044. I was kinda proud and surprised how well it came out but after about 2 years its in pretty rough shape. Recently i was voted in as 3rd asst. cheif and ocne again made my own shield for my 660 and surprise! turned out pretty good. But to get to the point im looking for new and simpler ways to make my shields even better. So any tips on lettering and so on would be greatly appreciated!

    Ill post pics of my shields ive made so far when i get some uploaded.
