  1. First belt bleeding

    I made my first belt, tooled, dyed, glued, finished and stitched. I used fiebings (not sure if its water oil based) and finished with 3 coats of 50/50 resolene. The back liner is not dyed, but the edges are. Edges and liner hit with resolene as well. I wore the belt over the weekend and noticed some bleed from the edge dye and were the buckle/skive end sits. How do I stop the dye bleed?? I've buffed between dye and resolene and it was clean, no noticeble residue on the rag. My fear is if/when the belt gets wet it will bleed more. I haven't tried it because I'm worried my stitching will absorb the bleed (white thread, brown dye). What can I do to fix and prevent this? Any help is appreciated!!
