Black on Red Weave Belt

Another Christmas present that got on its way this afternoon.  In this case the client wasn't entirely sure what they were looking for, just so long as it was a simple pattern, black with red highlights.  I came up with a few different samples and from that she picked a weave design and a layering of two different watercolors.

On the hole it was straightforward enough as projects go.  My 9 oz hide wound up being about 6" shy of the necessary length so I whipped up an extension to hold the buckle on.  The watercolor stain was finicky as usual and seems to have caused some wrinkling on the extender somehow.  I don't think I've seen that before but it has been a long time since I've used this particular stain.
