  1. Thanks Colt, does the neatsfoot oil affect the acrylic sticking? Do I need to be careful about how much to apply? I would like to try painting with dyes in the future, will the neatsfoot oil affect the dyes?
  2. Hi, I have been seeing the idea of conditioning leather floating around in forums but I don't really get it. Currently I use veg tanned leather which I wet and dry quite a bit as I do a lot of tooling and this can drag out in short sessions over weeks. So by the time I'm finished I'm guessing my leather could really do with some conditioning but I'm worried about the acrylic paint (for flowers and things) not sticking. Currently I just apply my acrylic cova colors straight onto dry leather then use a super sheen over the colours before staining. After staining I then super sheen the whole lot to seal it. I don't bother conditioning because I figure it wouldn't be able to penetrate the super sheen??? Should I be conditioning before I paint or will it affect the acrylic sticking? If so what conditioner should I use? I have some carnauba creme which says it's a natural wax finish. Is there a better suggestion for making the acrylic stick? Once I use up my cova colors I will conver to angelus colors for improved flexibility. Thanks in advance.
