Re: [BKARTS] Odd leather question



You might try rubbing it very gently with some extremely fine sandpaper or
steel wool.   I did this once to a very glossy skin, and on that one, it
worked quite well.

Subject: [BKARTS] Odd leather question


> 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,
