A little experiment.

#1 Post by Graps » Sat Dec 22, 2018 1:34 pm

I have an idea.
I like to put a resist on some of my projects so it will come out a two tone and the tooled pattern will stand out.
My idea is, stain the leather with just regular leather dye and after it dries, then paint on the resist over the tooling.
Then I will use black antique gel over everything.
Will it wok?
Here is what it looks like after applying red dye and the resist on the tooling stamp.

I noticed that some of the red is showing through the black, but I think I still like it.

I have red sinew so I stitched it up with that.

That looks nice Dale.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
