BORDER STAMPS

 

YOU HAVE ARRIVED AT THE MOST DIFFICULT PORTION OF YOUR ORDER- THE TOOLING

THE NEXT FEW PAGES CONTAIN BORDER STAMPS, FILL STAMPS(COMMONLY CALLED BASKETSTAMP), AND FLORAL CARVING. TAKE YOUR TIME~ EVERYONE STRUGGLES HERE! 

  When creating your own look you WILL need to browse the internet and study premade saddles from other companies in order to be able to truly notice their intricate  combinations of borders, basketweaves and floral carvings. Send pictures of what interests you the most so we can discuss them. 

This is a personal journey of decisions. Most folks have never had the pleasure of designing their own saddle so it quite often proves to be an overwhelming experience.  I will guide you where I can.    

 

THE BEST WAY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT IS TO SEND A PICTURE OF THE SADDLE YOU WISH MY TOOLER TO DUPLICATE.  

EVERY TOOLER HAS HIS OR HER OWN STYLE, THEREFORE WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REPLICATE ANYTHING YOU SEND US. MY TOOLER WILL CREATE HIS VERSION OF THE CARVING AND STAMPING PATTERNS THAT HE SEE IS THE PICTURES YOU SEND.

                                              ITS ALOT LIKE CHRISTMAS!     

                    

                                    MY HOPE IS THAT YOU ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE 

Veiner Stamp &  7 seed shell

Barbwire border tool

 A single tool can become a multipass by adding a 2nd tool, such as a shell, or a bead. this tool can also be used as a fill tool!

Twisted Rope

Cross hatch with our without the flower center

Wheat

Braid

San Carlos

Geo Star

The Geo star can be used as a border or a fill tool. We only charge extra for the bead when it is used as a border. The bead is formed when the 2nd line is added. We automatically put a set of lines to frame the star as a guide when stamping. 

The Crown Serpentine border can be a double as pictured or a single by removing the upper row. add a rope or shell or ? on the edges and create an entirely new design! The way it turns corners can be changed as well. See examples.

Shell

The shell edge can be any of the tools below- yours doesn't have to be small or plain at all- plain would be a camoflauge or a #1 seed! They are commonly used when you are having a border tool put on the outside of your fill tool & you don't want any competition between the border tool and the fill edge tool. (all fills must have an edge tool to hide the irregular edge of the finished pattern)
