Hi all

 

Can chrome tanned leather be dyied successfully?  My first attempts appear be successful but what of long term survival?  

Photo is of Portifino D Shoulder leather from Tandy.  Before and after application of a custom blend of three Pro Die shades with a single coat of Fiebings Pro Resist on top.  What's there not to love!

According to the Tandy website, "This rich-looking leather from Spain has been veg-tanned in a historic tannery with a naked finish that has a luxurious two-tone pull-up effect. Use to make lightweight belts, cases and handbags."

Haha...OK well that makes sense then!  I assumed i was working with a Chrome tanned product by the look and feel of it. 

That I guess explains the results I got.

 

Thank you!
