  1. Great info! Thanks for making me resolute in my decision not to use it. I like my shoes of somewhat pliable and floppy leather, more for comfort and warmth than for protecting my feet from chainsaw cuts and falling objects.
  2. Thanks! I have everything I need for that! Nothing special for veg-tan then? I'd try it on scrap first, as I'd love to share the answer, but then I'd have to open the Resoline. As it is, I can return it. I know that people paint leather shoes with acrylic paints. I wonder what happens after that. That experiment I can do on my own, tho. I have acrylics.
  3. What would you use instead? I should have asked before I bought the stuff...
  4. I'm making shoes. I am using milled veg-tan leather because this is what my teacher uses & I'm following along until I choose to make a different decision. I am going to dye the leather, but then I have to waterproof it. I bought some Fiebing's Resoline, which is an acrylic-based waterproofer that the sales person recommended because it will keep the leather supple and protect the dye while waterproofing. When I bought it, I didn't realize it was acrylic. Will the leather still accept regular shoe water-proofing after this? I usually Sno-Proof or mink-oil or some other oil-based protectant. Thanks!
