  1. great video my question is say we are doing a belt with a floral design how do we get three different colors in such a small space say black back ground light brown on edge and high points and darker brown on floral bevels

    1. Hi Robert,
      For something like that you can use a small paintbrush to put in the black background and then you can use an antique finish. The antique finish will darken the bevel lines and give the rest of the leather a lighter color. Check out the following video by Don Gonzales showing how to paint in black dye in the tooled areas: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTz04b5CnHw
