Evening all, I'm interested in learning more about strikers (metal salts which react with tannins in leather to effect a colour change), especially with regards to veg tanned leather. I've not come up with many concrete references even in the archives of the leather chemists. We all know about the effects of iron -- the blue-grey-black shades which can be made using vinegroon (ferrous acetate) or green copperas (ferrous sulphate). I've also read of salts of tartar (potassium chloride) which can cause a brown colour, and mentions of tin salts which can result in a red. What other options are there? Many thanks, Matt
