  2. Motorcycle seat finnish?

    Davids back!!!! Sorry for the excitement, learned most, if not all, of what i know of start to finish seat building from davids contributions on this site. Glad to see you're making seats again.
  3. Xian Leather videos

    The incomparable christian marsh of xian leather is producing some insightful and personal videos that can be found on his youtube channel " christian xianleather marsh." Its as much about life as it is about leatherwork. Well worth watching and absorbing all that it has to offer. Though he is no longer making seats and motorcycle items, i figured the most appreciation would come from people who are familiar with his work. Enjoy
  4. Motorcycle seat finnish?

    I only use oil dye... so i can just speak for its success with that. But i dont see why it wouldnt. Do a search on forum bout resolene and im sure someone will have already addressed that topic. Good luck

  7. Another Theobald Inspired Build

    Pre airbrush dying and after. I assemble seat, then dye. More specifically. .. I Dip dye natural kangaroo lace. Lace. Airbrush dye seat with fiebings and denatured alcohol mix. Resist 2 coats of rtc. Antique with fiebings cut with tan kote. Then, 3 coats resolene. Dying after assembly cuts down the chance of an undyed section showing through.
