Wow, amazing work! I was always wondering about the colors of the straps of the harness. Do you use red or natural leather and color it oder how do you handle making it black in the middle and red on the outsides?
It's made with natural veg tanned leather. I paint it all black then just carefully add the red stripes on the outside. That way it hides all of the markings I made on the leather under the black paint and the red paint pops. It just takes two coats of red. Harness took like 4 hours to paint.
