One Reply to “The Leather Element: Water Based Dye vs Pro Dye”

  1. I have been using alcohol based dyes since the 70′ until the Tandy manager turned me on to Pro Dye. The best feature is the dye doesn’t dry out the leather like the old dyes did. But, I do a lot of pastel colors and need light, bright colors that pop so, for small flowers, stems, etc I keep a small 4oz bottle of Red & Yellow in the shop to get the brightest reds and yellow in my pastel work. Test it and see if I’m not wrong. Pro Dye yellow looks almost like light tan next to the alcohol based yellow. The red is brighter as well.
