  1. Which tutorial is this? I tried to find it with the search in the forum, but I'm not sure which tutorial you were referring to. Could you post a link to it?
  2. I'm really looking at this out of curiosity. 5tsp of powdered tragacanth seems to make about 1L of a thick syrup that works just fine on the leather, which only cost $6. However, I'm interested in finding out of similar products would do a similar job. I'm running a few experiments of my own at the moment (will post when they've had a day or so to dry), and I'm interested to know if anyone else has done these comparisons, and what their results were. I think that liter of tragacanth its going to last a while, unless it goes off somehow, but tragacanth is generally hard to find, and there might be some people out there who cant find it or want a cheaper solution.
  3. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone had tried alternatives to gum tragacanth to use when burnishing leather. Tragacanth is expensive, and I'm wondering if anyone has run tests on gum arabic, guar gum, or xanthan gum, and what the results were. Are there reasons you can't use these similar products, ie damage to the leather, discolouration, dries poorly, etc? Thanks Sean St.
