Hand Tooled Leather Lazy Susan

Step 6

The color is on the leather and it’s time to stain it.

I’m using leather dye on this project though I have used many different ways to dye leather in the past.

I’m using a wool swab to apply the dye and I’M WEARING GLOVES. I tried this one time and didn’t wear them and ended up with brown hands for three weeks.

After you have as much dye on the piece as pleases you, buff the leather off with a soft towel.

You will notice that you can’t see the color as vividly now that the dye has been applied. No problem. Follow this blog to see the next step. I will remedy the color problem if you like to see more vivid color.

Have fun!
