Brooksie posted a topic in Dyes, Antiques, Stains, Glues, Waxes, Finishes and Conditioners.I'm looking to replace Fiebings edge dye that I have used for years. I use it for edge dying and touching up holes. They have discontinued it, so I'm having to recreate it. I need a solvent based pigment and de natured alcohol, I guess. Any suggestions? I would like to know what and where I can find the right pigment.
In the most recent issue of Leather Crafters and Saddlers journal there is a tutorial on how to make leather flip flops. On page #12 step 20a they are dying the edges with a brown Bob Park edge Marker!!!! I want one, anyone know how to get one? Bob if you see this im sold!!! Take my money!!!
Hi guys, I've been having some issues with my Fiebing's Edge Kote and Eco-Flo dye leaking if the leather gets damp. What products or techniques do you use to prevent that? Normally the amount of leaking from the Edge Kote isn't terrible, but I worry about it for bag straps. Again, it's only an issue if it gets wet, but still, I'd love to find a solution! I have tried Tan-Kote, Bag-Kote, and the Eco-Flo Satin Shene without much success. I've been doing several coats and letting it have plenty of time to set. The leaking is significantly worse if I treat the leather with saddle soap before or after, which is a pity because I love its effect. I really want a fail safe way to finish edges at the least, and if possible dye my own leather without having to worry about ruining people's clothing! Thanks!
