Leather shaving

Recommended Posts

I took some veg tanned leather to a shaving machine at a local tannery after soaking it overnight in water......the machine was able to shave it but the grain side develops bumps filled with air(that's our assumption) and i can't use it like that......please help with any advice or possible solutions....I left a few hides at the tannery to  so I really need to know what's wrong before they try shaving it again.

Hi, I am no expert but that looks like the paint has bubbled with the heat from the shave, or it is possibly water ?? Also why did you soak the leather all night??
