    Very nice. Dyes are so much easier to deal with than paint to me. You seemed to have figured it out. Not really a fan of green, Ut that is nice.

    That looks fantastic. I really liked the Angelus leather dye purple I used. Until I found out I screwed up the top sanding before the dye was applied. Otherwise, it was great!

    Not sure how it's different. I watched some videos of guys using leather dyes and went for it.

    Awesome!! I immediately think "Lizardburst".

    It'll really pop when you apply finish, can't wait to see the progress on this one.

    California regs on leather dye kinda stopped me from doing leather work, since they didn't allow solvent-based dye. Tandy only had the water-borne dye which was not wear-proof on leather making it just not worth it. Even the black was a weak sister color that was just not that military black I wanted. Now that I'm moving to Indiana, I'll be able to get real solvent-based leather dye again. With that, I've got an idea or two in mind for a dye-top axe. And a strap or two, mebbe a belt or three or four, a rifle sling or two -
