You do NOT need to spend a crapload of money on studs — i know you don’t live in the States, but you can still buy from http://store.derangeddesigns.com … the studs are super cheap, postage is reasonable and the lady who runs it is awesome. Get a hundred studs, it sounds like a lot but it really isn’t.

And stud guns are not needed… a stud will have several prongs in the back, which can be folded down with something like a nail file or some tiny pliers or something like that.

Oh, and studding leather and denim is a bit harder because of the thickness of the fabric. But persevere!
