Re: [BKARTS] Odd leather question



Melissa,

I hit some harmatan goat with steam the other day and it's sure 'nuf
dull now! Kinda cooked most of the texture out too... This wasn't a
controlled process but there may be something here for your
experiments.

Hi - Does anyone have a good method for permanently dulling the glossy
surface of some goatskins, without damage to the leather?  If it
helps, I'm using a Harmatan skin, grade 2, dark brown, and I want it
to have a very matte appearance. It will be used structurally and also
as feather onlays. Any ideas are much appreciated,
