We were trying to think of a nice site token to give out at the recent Viceroy tournament. One idea was making a little leather badge with some design on it, maybe the Insulae Draconis device...



I wondered about my carving and/or painting skills and the amount of time it would take to do 60+ tokens. I went online to see if I could find some embossing stamp tools that would enable me to build up the image quickly (I was thinking of maybe a small ellipse to do the leaves on the wreath, a crescent, some half-circles and triangles etc), when I came across a leather craft supplier that could do me an embossing plate. Aha, this could be the answer, I thought, and that's what I did. For the fun of it, I took some pictures of how this was achieved...

How I did it, behind the cut... )
