A skater asked me to make some toe guards for her that have flames on them. I dug around in my leather stash, and I found some little pieces of red, orange and yellow lizard hide. She sent an image to me showing the style of flames she wanted. I drew them out on the leather:

Then I cut them out and glued them on to the toe guards (and this is where I forgot to take pictures!). Here is the final result:

I am pleased with the outcome, and it was certainly one of my more challenging assignments!
