This was a commission for an arm guard in the same style as my Oak Falcon arm guard, but with a golden eagle. I'm trying to practice dyeing with fewer colors and figuring out which colors to put side by side for good contrast. It's tough because unlike paint, you can't really mix colors to get just the right color! And the more layers you put on, the darker it gets.
Hand-tooled 7-oz leather. The only paint that's on it is on the green leaves and slight gold accents on the dots and neck feathers.
