  1. Airbrushing help

    So I have multiple questions on this subject, some of which I know have been answered on other posts( don't need to be told how to use the search function, I have found some answers to a lower degree than I prefer) Vescocity of dye and type. What is the best type of dye for spraying? Just looking for a what works best for most and a place to start testing on my own. System: I am on a very tight budget but am willing to relocate funds to get something worth while. I am wishing to do overall dying as well as coloring tooling. Now that I have brought up coloring, is the a latex or silicone coating I can use to cover areas I do not want overstay that could be peeled off afterwards.
  2. HI guys, I am a bit fancy of golden color and antique green color, but It looks like i could not buy those colors straight from shop. Just wondering can anybody shed some light on how to produce these two colors and what do you think of those colors applied on leather? cheers, Kurt
  3. I am looking at having different shades of light brown. How don't do that? What dye or stain will give me those results and do l use brush, dauber or sponge.
  4. Is it Veg Tan?

    Hi, I've been learning to work with leather for about 6 weeks, so I'm pretty inexperienced when selecting leather. I get my practice veg tan scraps from a dusty, old box at the local Army Surplus Store. Most of the time I have no trouble telling veg tan apart from other types of leather. But there is this one piece of leather at the surplus store that has me really scratching my head. It looks like it may be a piece of belly, looks to be between 7-9oz, kind of grey in color instead of a tan to salmon color like what I'm used to seeing, slightly shiney like veg tan, a little less firm than most veg tan I've felt (I've never felt good veg tan, so not much to go by). The piece is $8. I know that doesn't sound like much to spend on an experiment,. But I'm on such a tight budget that $8 feeds me and my sweetheart for a whole day, so for $8 I have to be pretty sure it's the right thing. Even though it looks and feels a lot like veg tan, somithing in my gut says it ain't right. Is it possible for veg tan to come the way I described?
  5. Hello everyone, I was reading leathercrafting101 and noticed for the tandy eco-flow waterstains they had a picture of several pieces of leather dyed and they were so vibrant especially the seafoam green and turquoise. Has anyone every been able to use these dyes and get that type of coloration as in the picture? please help http://blog.leathercraftlibrary.com/2015/05/12/leather-coloring-101/
  6. So I've been trying to find sources for colourful veg tanned leather... So far I have found buttero leather which i think is entirely veg tanned and Pergamena in New York has nice colours too but their leather is made for bookbinding and is not stiff enough for what i want to make. Does anyone have any other sources?
  7. Saddle Makeover

    Looking for advice on what I can do with this saddle! Is there anyway to deglaze the seat and dye it another color? I am hoping to take it to a dark brown or mahogany color if possible. Also, the basket stamp portion on the skirt and pommel has a glittery finish - yes, GLITTER! Is there anyway I can remove this? I love this saddle - it is very comfortable and I use it all the time for barrel racing but it is just plain tacky! Any advice is appreciated!
  8. Color Issues on Armor

    So im making armor with a moderately thick leather. I'm trying to get part of my leather to a super exact light blue color. I was wondering what j should do to achieve that. Should I try leather paint and mix it to the right color?
  9. My husband wants me to make a wallet for him. Plain Jane, black dye/stain around the edges and blend it to a lighter color. Probably brown. I have seen some outstanding dye jobs and am just wondering, how the heck do y'all do it?! I've read that you have to use spirit-based, is that true? I'm a newb and using Tandy's Eco-flo line. I like the colors, and don't even know where to begin outside of their line. Pictures for reference to give y'all an idea what I'm talking about.
  10. Fading Color Spirit Dyes

    For the most part over the years I have stuck with traditional fiebings spirit dyes such as browns, tans, blacks, etc, and I do love them. I've always been wary of doing whole pieces or even accenting with color dyes such as greens, blues, purples, etc. In the past year I've done a few whole pieces as well as accenting with green, blue and other fiebings dyes of the brighter color spectrum (I've had no trouble with the reds) and have noticed a year down the road they fade and often change color terribly and that's with minimal direct sunlight. I was wondering if any of you experienced leather workers had any advice on using colored dyes as I am getting more requests for such brighter colored work, but I do not want to do so worrying about severe fading/discoloration down the road. I have only used fiebings, but I am certainly open to other brands. Don't get me wrong, I do love fiebings traditional color spirit dyes and they have worked well for me over the years, it is just the brighter spectrum I have trouble with, save for the reds. I have no interest in eco flo dyes or any water based dyes. Thank you kindly in advance, -Cheyenne W
  11. To buy the dark brown or the light brown, is the question. Is it better to thin out the dark brown or just go heavy or multiple coats with the light brown to achieve a medium brown or colors in between? Money is tight and would like to buy one bottle of dye to use for now. I have been using Fiebings leather dye. Thank you in advance.
  12. So this thread I wanted to see what products were best in Leather painting or surface coloring applications. I'm looking for something for light colors like solid Yellow, solid Orange, solid White etc. etc. I'm seeing so many products out there. I can't tell what the difference is between them and what would work best. My projects normally go through rain and get worn a lot and go through abuse and I want something that won't chip off easy but also gives good bright colors that can bend and all and maybe even soak into the pours if possible... Or maybe I could dye it 1st and paint over it so that if it chips it'll have a close color under it????
  13. Back in September I posted the raw toolings of these two bibs to share. Here they are all colored and mounted on the client's 2001 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail. Also attached is the finished "no Evil" set ready for delivery.
  14. I completed several pancake and IWB holsters recently. Please take a look and let me know what you think. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I would particularly like comments and suggestions on the cross draw holster.
  15. I have searched the forums but havent found any good answers. I like oil dye, as I haven't had any problems with it, and I havent tried any water/alcohol based dyes yet. I use cut resolene as a finish, and I heard people have had issues with water/alcohol based dyes coming off when using it. Anyways, I would like to create my own custom colors of dye, whether that requires making dyes from scratch or mixing two existing dyes. I am looking to make colors like indigo/navy, maroon/dark red, and dark green. What is the best way to achieve this? I use feibings pro oil dye now, but I am completely open to suggestions. Thanks Zayne
  16. Hi Folks, I Need some help. I carved and tooled a dog. I used a hairblade after all the other work was done. After drying I use Fiebings prof. Oildye for coloring the dog. In the hairblade cuts the Color was very intense. Where it was beveled, or Areas where used a modelling tool it has hardly accepted color........... It Looks horrible. Are there other Colors which Color uniform, or will the Problem be the same? Unfortunately I have no camera at the Moment and can not Show you the Picture of Horror, perhaps just as well for your eyes ( less pain) Greetings Thomas
  17. Thoughts?

    I'm interested in dyeing leather white, and obtaining the effect shown in this image. Anyone have any thoughts on how to color the leather white? Is there a white dye? I'd prefer not to paint the leather if possible. How do you suggest I do the shadowed effect?
  18. I need your expertise! What color is this? (ok, I know it is yellow) but where can I get such a bright shade of yellow in dye? I have tried Fiebing, ecoflow, and even the new waterstains from Tandy, but they are all very...darker. My second question is: would I need to block dye with a Brown antique to get this effect? Thanks in advance!!
  19. I am having trouble getting even color coverage on my dyed pieces. I am using Angelus spirit based dyes thinned with denatured alcohol and I use a wool dauber to apply the dye. I always apply a VERY light coat of neetsfoot oil and let it dry before dying. I have no problem on narrow pieces where the dauber can cover the whole width in one stroke but on 1" and above I am having trouble because of having to make multiple passes. I have my dye thinned to the point where I can go over several times and get the color I want, but usually if I thin the dye too much for more passes the final color is watered and weak. Any suggestions? I don't have an air gun, and would much rather stick with hand applying the dye. here is a picture of the kind of streaking I am getting. It is not horrible but I really would rather have the color nice and even over the whole piece. Thanks in advance!
  20. I have been buying my leather exclusively from Tandy and have found that it is really easy to find nice white hides in very light cuts (2-3oz) but in the thicker cuts I use for dog collars (9-10oz) the leather is always quite dark tan. Is this normal for all suppliers or is it just a Tandy thing? I just finally got my Springfield Leather catalog (AWESOME!) and was thinking about getting a hide from them but was hoping for some input on this before I order. I am in Portland, Oregon so I only have a few local suppliers I can go to and actually see the hide. Is this something others have experienced? I am able to get really nice light pastel-ey colors on my lighter leather but those colors are impossible to get on my thicker leathers. It is bumming me out! Thoughts?
  21. I'm having some major issues sealing a piece I've dyed with the Eco-Flo Scarlet Red color. I made sure to buff between each layer of dying, and buffed before sealing with Satin Sheen, but after 3 coats of Satin Sheen, color is STILL coming off quite a bit. The amount of residual dye on my daubers is not diminishing. This is a piece that will be worn on bare skin, and I certainly don't want to potentially stain skin after sweating or in minor rain! Has anyone else had issues with red in particular? I've never had issues like this with any other color I've dyed with before. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!
  22. Colored Hides For Belts

    Im looking for a source for colored hides to make strapping and belts. Solid vibrant colors like green, blue, yellow, red etc. Anyone know of any websites that produce/sell these kinds of hides?
  23. Hello everyone! I'm just signed on to the forum and a newbie with leather, so I was hoping for some advice. I've been lurking on the forum the last little while and found a couple of things I want to try for dyeing my leather. I've seen tea-dyeing mentioned briefly, but I've never seen the actual colour results. Does anyone have any pictures of things they've tea-dyed? Any tips as far as how long to leave in the dye, finishing, etc would also be appreciated! Another thing I'd like to try is darkening the leather with oil. I read somewhere that leaving the oiled leather in the sun causes it to darken to a nice light brown colour. Unfortunately we've a foot of snow on the ground up here right now and I can't leave the leather outside. Would hanging the leather in front of a window or something give the same effect as leaving it in the sun? I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks!
