Anyone use Hyrdrophane Darkening Oil?

Has anyone here used Hyrdrophane darkening oil to darken their saddle or any other tack? I'm curious to know just how much darker you were able to get it.

If you have any before and/or after pictures please post them!!

Thank you!!!

I have. It's very subtle and lightens as it dries. I usually put 2-3 coats on the first day, then a coat every 3 days until it's the color I want it. Letting it dry in the sun will help darken leather a little quicker.

Using olive oil on tack and letting it dry in the sun will also darken the leather.

Darkening oil only works on leather that is well cleaned without a high shine. If there's too much "gloss" on leather before you start, not as much of the oil will soak in.
