  1. How to achieve this two-tone finish?

    Thanks! This is so interesting I will definitely look into all this reading material and the chemistry behind what have now become off-the-shelf products. I'm sure it will yield better results (and also ones that I can customize more to my liking)!
  2. How to achieve this two-tone finish?

    Yup! I love Prince Armory's work and have seen it firsthand at conventions
  3. How to achieve this two-tone finish?

    Thanks for the reply! I am a cellist myself so I definitely recognize the sunburst affect as it is similar to the woodstain on stringed instruments. Would I be doing these "degrades" with lighter/darker colors of dye as appropriate? If you have any product/finish recommendations it would be much appreciated :).
  4. Hello! I recently came across the work of La Geuse on DeviantArt and love her "gradient" esque finishes where the dye is darker on the edges. I used to achieve this affect on cosplay pieces before I started working with leather by applying a dark wash and wiping away, but I want to know how to get this finish using leather dye. I make armored corsets and a lot of heavy armor for SCA and would love to achieve a similar finish on my work. My confusion comes from if her finish is achieved by airbrushing on a darker color of dye on the edges (or thinning angelus paints to do this) OR if this is some form of antiquing. I am coming to leather from the cosplay world, and while my construction is pretty good I am looking to heavily improve my dyeing process. Thanks all!
