I have just viewed Lesson 1 in it’s entirety and am ready to get started but have a few questions regarding the materials.
1. I prefer to work with leather and have been using Tandy Leather Contact Cement to date. Do I need to switch to Rubber Cement? I was previously told that the sewing needle passes through Contact Cement better than rubber cement, but maybe that information was wrong, please advise.
2. I could not find Oaktag Paper anywhere so I purchased a pink material from Tandy Leather that makes a good pattern, but it is too thick to utilize your methods of scoring and bending. Where can I order the proper pattern material?
3. When using leather, how much smaller should I make the lining? I’m sure it depends on the thickness of the leather being used, but I thought you might have a rule-of-thumb (i.e. for 2-3 oz leather make lining 1/4″ smaller, etc)
Thank you and I look forward to getting started!
