kyleatherworker posted a topic in Dyes, Antiques, Stains, Glues, Waxes, Finishes and Conditioners.Hi Everyone, Does anyone have a favorite medium brown for dying holsters and belts with? I typically use the Fiebings Pro Dye and love it. But, I cannot find a good medium brown that I like. I love the pro dye as it doesn't streak and give a nice even coat. I have a bottle of water based Eco Flow Timber Brown. It's about the right shade with enough red in it. But, it blotches up terribly on the leather! I'm looking to buy some Angelus dye as I found what I think is a good color from the online swatches. Does anyone have any feedback on the Angelus dyes? Thanks in advance for the help. Craig
Greetings my new friends; I made 4 gal. Black Walnut dye/stain, cooking husks 4 hours, then cooling overnight, filtered 5 times & bottled. It's not as dark a brown as I would like. Soaking samples for 1 hour or overnight, produced same color tone. This photo shows my leatherwork 'practice' session results. The hatchet sheaths are from same piece of veg tanned hide, the multi-tool sheath from various small scraps. Shall I put it all back in the pot over low flame to evaporate the water? Will this necessarily produce a darker brown color? Thanks for any comments/critiques. Wally
