Even when I'm not officially taking orders, all my hobby friends know I'm bribe-able. I am most easily tempted with fancy resins, but small jobs can be "bought" with much smaller "payments."
So far this week I have spent my time making new stirrups for Regan's older but still lovely dark oil saddle by Lauren Wood.This saddle's original stirrups were much too small to accommodate a traditional scale rider's boot.
Whenever I update another tackmaker's work, I always try my best to stay true to the original design. This time I think I succeeded nicely.
My payment for this project? A severed Stone Arab head.
Teresa's Kistler girths are absolutely beautiful as is, but she'd prefer roller buckles.
This time my payment is liquid in form.
And you know, it's been a long hot day and I think I am ready to partake of Teresa's bribe. Cheers!
