We have a couple pieces of light oil leather tack that we want to re dye in a dark color. The saddle is in need of alot of help and neatsfoot oil will not darken it enough. Any ideas or solutions would be greatly appreciated.
There are dark marks where the stirrup leathers had rubbed in the saddle, but not sure if a professional would have been able to prevent that anyway...no splotches or uneven marks anywhere else though, you just sponge it on, let it soak, buff it off. I've done it maybe 6 or 7 times to my saddle and it keeps getting darker and darker, I love it :)
Wow!!! Thanks everyone!!! This will really help. We have done leatherwork when we were in 4-h and every now and then I will whip out the tools to make something but we never covered re dying or darkening a finished product. And the hint on wearing dark pants the first couple times is priceless.. I doubt that I would have thought of that.
Again, thanks for everything!!! Posted via Mobile Device
