Hello everyone, I have a question that sure some ask before but my English is no good to seeking here so.

What product to use so as not paint with the interior belt part in the pants with a belt? Maybe tan kote?

Thnks

Gum Tragacanth is water soluble, so may be OK for Eskimos but NOT for a belt in Spain, other than to produce a glossy edge. Since the flesh side of the belt will possibly get wet from sweat, you should seal it. I use Resolene, which is an acrylic and will seal the leather and prevent any staining of either pants or leather.

Where in Ireland are you? I used to live in Dublin but spend a lot of time in West Clare.
