Tree pattern is ready to be cut out of the leather and glued down. The various background panels are all covered in the leather now.

 Paul is brushing on the bad smelling contact glue. Note the wide open door and the big fan in the window. This type of glue can make you very ill. Now we use a water based cement that has no toxic fumes. The tree base and the leather were both covered with the glue and when it dried the layers were pressed together for a strong bond.



 Beverley is applying the acrylic paint with an air brush because the area was so large. This also allowed the texture of the leather to be brought out instead of covered up with streaks.
