    Making Belts, The Easy Way

    I followed your instructions on three different belts and they all were too short. What did I do wrong?

    Leather dyes

    Do leather dyes get old and not work as good? I was applying a dye I have had for awhile and it didn't seem to go on very well.

    Sealing leather

    Will oil base dye penetrate the super sheen I put on it?

    Sealing leather

    I used black antique first but wasn't as black as I liked so went over it with usmc black. I buffed it after it was dry with lambs wool.

    Sealing leather

    What is best to seal leather after dying it? How do apply it without taking the dye off? I think I just ruined a project I was working on for a customer when I was sealing it and it started removing a lot of the black dye. I am about to throw in the towel doing leather work if I cannot dye it and the dye stays on when I seal it. I was spraying super sheen but it had a lot of bubbles and I used a sponge to try to spread it out to get rid of the bubbles. Last time I sprayed it left spots where the bubbles were.

    Conceal carry holster for middle of back

    Thank you did not think about that. Can it be off to the side but still considered in the back?
  10. I have a customer ask for a conceal carry holster for the middle of his back. I have tried to modify a pattern I have that is for a minimal semi-automatic holster. It is for a small block. Does anyone have a pattern they could share? I want to put belt clips where the slots for a belt are so It fits inside the pants.

    Block dying

    There may have been post bout this and if so direct me to them. What kind of dye is best used for this? I have been practicing with antique black but not getting the results I am looking for. I may be doing it wrong also. I have embossed a train engine on a IPhone case and I am wanting it to stand out along with the veiner border I put around it.
