  2. Hi @Northmount, I got all the patterns saved in my PC; if you wish I can send them to you and you post them!
  3. Just a question and I'm sorry it it sound dumb! Did you buy antique paste or the new gel Antique by Fiebieng's ? That would explain the liquid consistency
  4. It depends on the casing method If you use the method of submerging the leather in water and then put it in a ziplock bag in the fridge it's better to do it before taping. Otherwise I do it after Yes, it's really a great tip!
  5. Hi For me the best tip on the subject is this video from Ed LaBarre
  6. Hi D2G, I've made a similar one about 2 years ago, and I followed the instructions of Andersen leather. You should check his blog (look for the older posts, he's got a step-by-step) http://andersenleather.blogspot.com
  7. Hi @dragonhawke, if you don't mind sending me the pattern, I'd appreciate it. My email: spborges74@gmail.com Thank you and greetings from Portugal Sandra

  10. You can still access it through web archive. Here's the link @Tinkerton https://web.archive.org/web/20160406220204/http://www.kingsmerecrafts.com/
  11. On the video George Hurst says it's saddle tan !
  12. It's simple to make the conversion just multiply the given inches by 2.54cm, or by 25.4mm if you want the result in mm! And there's also many online sites that convert easily An example : https://www.inches-to-cm.com/
  13. I've never used olive oil on my leather or EcoFlo water based products, but remember, olive oil and water don't mix. Probably what happened is that the oil is dry on the surface and not inside the leather, preventing the the water dyes to be absorbed and keep the colour!
  14. They have two types of anilines dyes, to be mixed with alcohol, or with water ("agua" in spanish) They can be used to dye any porous material like wood, cork, thick paper, leather of course And yes, their colours are great, although many places don't have all the colours available for sale.
