  1. well now I tried it with a bunch of different scraps of veg tan from tandy, and one turned out very dark brown, and the others turned a kind of light purple! I guess I'll have to go back to tandy and test out a couple different types. Strange how different types of veg tan react so differently...
  2. I am using baking soda, and some veg tan sholder from tandy. It does change colour but after it dries it's a faint redish brown. The baking soda is pretty old, other than that I can't think of anything else that could affect it.
  3. Has anyone else tried this? I can't get it to turn brown, it changes colour but only to a kind of redish pink. I used a lot of baking soda, so much that it wouldn't entirely dissolve in the water. The water was cold though, did you use hot water?
  4. That's amazing! I have never heard of that before, despite hours and hours of searching online. I'm going to try that out as soon as I can! Thanks
  5. Thanks for your help! I want a pretty dark brown will submerging the whole piece of leather make it very stiff? and what would I have to do to seal the whole piece of leather from the elements? Thanks!
  6. Okay I know this is a very newb question but I am wondering how to dye veg tan brown the whole way through, so that even the suede side gets a little colour to it. The suede side doesn't have to be as dark, just not the basic veg tan colour. Thanks!
