Beautiful clean work, as always!  Cool color swap there, too!

Re: Some Random Whips!

I love your knots Brandon! What sequence have you done in the handle?

Re: Some Random Whips!

Thank you very much Scott, Ron, Rachel and Jyri!! ^_^

Scott, thankfully, the power lines above my yard are at a ridiculous height, so there's no chance of that happening! haha

Ron, I have to agree, the fade is currently one of my favourite designs, very fun to do!~ And definitely, I could find a day to go to a big park, but it's been an incredibly rainy few days, so everything is mud sad

Jyri, the handle is a combination of 3 row bands and a doubled diamond plait. Here's what it looks like if you had two colours -

Re: Some Random Whips!

Lovely! That colour fade always gets me, one day I'll try it for myself. Or just buy one from you wink

Re: Some Random Whips!

Thank you Brandon! I forgot to say that colour fade is awesome too! Must be hard to do.

Re: Some Random Whips!

haha Thank you Matt and Jyri!! ^_^

Once you get experience adding and dropping strands, the colour fade isn't too bad~ It's more just making it smooth is more difficult tongue
Matt, if you do want to give it a go, I'd say make a few english eye whips first wink

Re: Some Random Whips!

Hey all!

Here's two whips I've made in the meantime, from some orders~

A very basic full brown bullwhip, 7ft. As always, with an english eye, and double looped fall smile

And a 6ft pink/black bullwhip, some fun plaits on the handle, and fishbone (I think that's the name) pattern on the thong.

Re: Some Random Whips!

What a contrast! One is ultra-discreet. The other, totally 'in your face'!  smile

Re: Some Random Whips!

I agree! I personally am more of a fan of the "in your face" kind - I've got a whip, might as well show it off, right? XD But I do appreciate the discreet kind too, it's much nicer to look at put against nature (as you can see from the images~)

Re: Some Random Whips!

Good job Brandon! I really like that brown one. Great knot work too!

33

Re: Some Random Whips!

The brown one is my favorite, but you did a great job on both.

Sparky, these are VERY well done, excellent work on both!

Nicely done, Brandon!

Re: Some Random Whips!

Very nice work, Brandon. I especially like the work on the handle on the "in your face" whip.
