    Does anyone tool leather?

    I asked this in my 'for sale' items but I thought maybe it could use another thread. I'm currently working on a spare bridle I have I couldn't sell so I'm 'blinging' it up a little. I'm putting pictures of it here complete. All the conchos are very good quality and are going back on it their original place but I'm tooling and adding rhinestones to the reins (have one done, I THINK so putting it here) but I made some mistakes starting, oiled the leather, etc. first, and had to wash some of it off, and I'm finding working on an already finished bridle to be harder than the conchos I make. Does anyone have any ideas on getting this type of leather to absorb more water, allowing me to not have to pound my tools to get the design show at all, or suggestions on what they think would look nice. I put to darker blue rhinestones on the rein first, and painted the vine part of the design blue. The third rhinestone is a lighter, brighter blue. I'm going to use two of the darker blue in between the hearts on the brow band, and all light on the sides of the headstall with a different tooling design, I HOPE, if I can figure out how to get it to accept water better. I think it needs a bigger design. Any ideas gratefully accepted. Cheryl
