Two hand-tooled winged dragons and a Celtic knot border were meticulously carved, tooled, colored and sealed into the outer cash pocket on this premium Buttero leather wallet. The body and interior of the wallet are also hand-tooled, featuring a unique Dragon Scale design in keeping with the overall theme of the wallet.

This wallet is completely hand made, starting with a paper sketch of the dragons which was then copied onto leather using a stylus. After transfer, a variety of swivel knives were used to carefully cut the lines of the drawing. Finally a specialized set of beveling and stamping tools were used to create the relief, a few millimeters at a time.

Color was applied with a combination of airbrushing and brush painting. The black background was applied with a paint brush. After color was applied, an antiquing pass was performed to highlight all of the fine details in the image. The horns and spines were first given a "resist" using a paintbrush, so that they would stand out brighter than the rest of the image after antiquing. Finally, a glossy surface finish was applied to protect the image.

Then this process began again as the dragon scales were tooled on the interior pockets of the wallet.

Finally, all of the pieces were hand stitched together using robust polyester thread, and the edges were sanded and burnished until smooth, painted black, and protected with beeswax.

The wallet took approximately 18 hours to construct, not counting the initial design phase. Photographs of the work-in-progress can be seen in a photo album on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1268025027013119&type=3
