  1. On the video George Hurst says it's saddle tan !
  2. It's simple to make the conversion just multiply the given inches by 2.54cm, or by 25.4mm if you want the result in mm! And there's also many online sites that convert easily An example : https://www.inches-to-cm.com/
  3. I Need Help!!

    I've never used olive oil on my leather or EcoFlo water based products, but remember, olive oil and water don't mix. Probably what happened is that the oil is dry on the surface and not inside the leather, preventing the the water dyes to be absorbed and keep the colour!
  4. They have two types of anilines dyes, to be mixed with alcohol, or with water ("agua" in spanish) They can be used to dye any porous material like wood, cork, thick paper, leather of course And yes, their colours are great, although many places don't have all the colours available for sale. Here are the links: https://mitiendadearte.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=anilina+ https://www.manosmaravillosas.com/index.php/Anilinas_791/Anilina-en-polvo-al-Alcohol-_9030 http://www.drogueriaboter.es/colorante-de-anilina-al-agua-tagAgrupANILINAA If you need help with anything, let me know Sandra
  5. I know these dyes I've used them too, they're great! If you can't get them from that store in Madrid, I know 2 or 3 online stores in Spain that sell them I can send you the links
  6. Hello.

    The link warning issue has been fixed so I wonder if you'd be so kind as to remove the warning screenshot from your post on my thread (in that it might scare people off from clicking my link.) Thank you so much

      Hi Jim, yes of course. Even thought I just quoted the the person who posted the warning. Unfortunately I didn't remove the image on my quote.

      Now I need to find out how to remove my comment. If I can't, I'll contact one of the forum's admin. to remove my comment, don't worry.

      I follow you channel almost since I began leatherwork, and I never had any problem with your links ;)

      Anytime :) And maybe you could ask the other member who posted the screenshot to remove it.

       

  7. I find it strange too, and to be honest I think the problem isn't your site or this forum, but something related to youtube. I've seen this happen on other sites when there's a third party involved!

    As a chair I can understand, but it's bad taste to put your feet on such a beautiful work!
