Colour Chart

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am in the process of making a guitar strap using some patterns from Peter Main's book "Australian Leather Carving" and in the section on colouring he refers to Al Stohlmans book "Colouring Leather" and the colour reference chart in there.  Has anyone made one of these charts and if so can you let me know what are the main colours used. I am particularly having trouble identifying the first colour which looks like an ochre.  I mainly use raven oils as that is what I can get nearby, (Brisbane)  I have been doing leatherwork on and off for a number of years but never really been concerned about specific colours before, but I would like to get the carving of the gums reasonably accurate.

Cheers Mark
