These modern water based leather dyes & paints are brilliant for use on new, clean veg tan tooling leather. They don't give off flammable fumes like the old fashioned spirit dyes, thought it's still advisable to use them in a well ventilated space.
If you haven't worked with leather dyes before, we recommend that you try them out on undyed veg tan scraps to get a feel for them and build up your confidence before embarking on a major project.
