    What Is Belly Leather Good For?

    I use them for backing on alot of my belts. The cowboys around here think it's cool to have the tick bites, scars and brand marks on them, of course I use grade B HO backs for the tooling side.
  6. I don't have a gallery to look at but here's a pic of one I've done. The skirts are 8" long, they're not exact replicas of any certain saddles just mini ones I can make with little time as possible. Kinda styled this one after the old time high back seats.

    Nitrile Wardrobe Malfunction

    lol, get some Go-Joe hand cleaner, or that stuff like it that's orange. It will take most of the stain off your hands, sometimes all of it.
  8. I don't have a clue what causing that but I use clear lac over fieblings antique all the time and never had a problem. Clear lac will cloud up if put on too heavy in humid weather but a second light coat after its dry will fix that.

    What To Do About Old Tools?

    Go to the auto parts store and get some evapo-rust or something like it. Your tools will come out rust free over night.
  11. The metal templates will turn your leather black where it rubs against the damp leather, unless your talking about a clicker dye of some kind.

    Please Help! Stain Issues

    KKiKoss, what you have there is basicaly the same thing, one is a gel the other liquid. I've never used them for any kind of wrist band so I don't really know if they are good for that but I'm guessing there not. I don't think they'll hold up to sweating. I use the gel on belts and they work great, also on my floral carvings on book covers and such. Someone with more experence with stuff that wears against the skin will have to help you on that.

    A dye soaks into the leather to color it. Stains are for antiqueing and highlights, the stain lays on top the leather and even after it has dried can be wiped off with a wet colth. When I use it I spray on the finish to seal it off so as not to smear the finished look.

    What kind of stain did you use? Are you sure it wasn't an antique or a highliter.
