Revamping the bag.

So Teacher John gave me this bag awhile back to freshen up. It's been sitting on my work table since mocking me cause I for the life of me couldn't figure out how to add something with out making it look like shit. Because the bag had already been dyed I couldn't tool on it so a simple carving with the swivel knife was the best option. Along with the webs I added the black dye around the name to make it stick out, I also used an antiquing gel on the whole bag to give it a little more life and character and topped it off by dyeing and waxing the edges to keep it sealed up.
All in all the bag turned out better than I expected and looks like it was made that way to begin with which was my goal.
