I came up with this...teal to green...
Thanks. Center is turquoise, perimeter is green mixed with turquoise.
damn, son, it looks great. leather dye, you say?
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.
Cooooooool - you are inspiring - so how is this dye different than the others in particular?
I've got some green black croc emboss leather coming
maybe not quite right for this one but I'm making one for my number one.
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!
That looks great! What kit is that?
I like it.
Not sure how it's different. I watched some videos of guys using leather dyes and went for it.
Aliexpress epiphone style kit.
Awesome!! I immediately think "Lizardburst".
It'll really pop when you apply finish, can't wait to see the progress on this one.
That is a beautiful job. What kind of LP body is that?
That does look really nice.
Also please post pic after the binding is scraped, its one of the most satisfying points in the build for me
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 -
What's taking you to Indiana Ray?
