  4. years ago i started the same way, but quickly found out that reaching a colour uniformity requires some practice and methodology. dip dying is one of the ways to reach uniformity in colour compared to daubers. this has 3 cons imho: 1 - requires more dye, 2 - it gives all the pigments into the leather, 3 - a limitation in process - you will get one colour (no antiquing or playing around with colour combination - exclusion is paints, such as angelus). did not work for me most times. so i came up with getting hands of using sponge technique (you can control the sponge size and surface square). personally never liked the idea of dilution (just because it is not a wood/metal paint which is required to be diluted), but it works of course. now working on airbrush technique
  5. in a room, a paint/stain/dye will dry faster than a wet piece of leather using a vacuum for wet forming will increase drying process, no matter the weather outside shiny or rainy
