Conchos made from leather truly do suit wider belts that reach into the hips.To finish your gracious style accessory, work a large piece of gator leather on the smaller belt loops. Use a hot iron to burn the top layer until it is fade-resistant. The lower surface of the hide is easily worked with a document or Emery board. Once you finish working the lower surface you can then hand-polish your tooled hide. An light sanding across the borders gives you a sharp-looking finish.Whether you would like a great and whimsical or warm and cozy look, gator-sticking is the perfect way to pull it off.
