If you've ever tried to resist dye with tan kote or supersheen or whatever, you probably had less than stellar results.   Using liquid frisket can do the job but there's a few things you need to know.

Next step.  Fade applied and latex removed to reveal pristine leather underneath.

Despite using this technique, I am still tickled when it works as anticipated.  Soooooo many failures have left me with a nervous tic.  Still have edges, holes and finish to apply and then its done.

Looking good!  That latex stuff does work great, but it feels soooooo damned weird when you peel it off.  It's like peeling skin after a sunburn. (I've seen your skin tone and you're living in the Mediterranean - I know you know what I mean!)

Dude..I don't leave the house between 11 and 4 without SPF 1 billion!  And you're right.  Its creepy.

Not enough coffee in me. The previous post should read "On so many levels". I should not type before waking.

LOL,  I know what you mean!  I'm not a red-head, but have enough Celtic genes to need sunscreen when I go outside in summer.

Is Frisket for leather only, or can you buy it in other craft stores?

LMAO!  Same here!  Frisket has been used in water color and other media for a long time.  Hobby lobby, Dick Blicks and Michaels all carry it.

I watched that whole video, waiting to see dye go on and to see the peel come off.  Felt somehow denied the satisfaction.   :huh:

Otherwise, awesome video, and great info, thanks for sharing!   :)

No benzine in leather dyes. Only spirits including ethanol and isopropyl alcohol.

As for other spirits:

Yikes!! That doll looks a lot like me :blink:  before you poke pins in it, let me explain-- in immiketoo's video he mentions cleaning his brushes with benzene.  I did a quickie wiki and it turns out there's benzene and benzine. While both are highly flammable volatiles, wiki says "...not to be confused with..." 

In a nutshell:

Benzine is known as petroleum ether because it is so light, and is used as a solvent.

Benzene is petrochemical, used as an industrial solvent. It gives gasoline it's sweet smell and is a carcinogen. It's vapors are so nasty it was replaced by toluene which has also been removed from most products like the glue people used to sniff.

A respirator is recommended for both.

Its an ancient runic language used by the Greeks but it predates what is considered ancient Greek.

I used a glue solvent to clean it.  Don't think its actually benzine or benzene but some other solvent.  I should probably check that...

I also wear gloves with that stuff.  Its really hard on the body.

Search for liquid latex and you'll find it cheaper in larger quantities i purchased a quart abour 5 years ago for approximately $12 and its still good. Kept in cool dark cabinet.
