Bruno Posted June 24, 2019 Share Posted June 24, 2019 Does anyone know how to keep leather dye from rubbing off ? I thought a saw a post about it recently, but I can't find it. I just finished a sheath out of elk hide, and I had some black/dark brown dye laying around. I don't have much experience with leather. I applied the dye. Then I put a wax coat on top, but the dye keeps rubbing off when I wipe it down with a cloth. The dye I think is Browns something or other, the label is colored over. Also, the bottle says,Harmful/Fatal if swallowed, should I be worried if I handle the sheath and then eat something or prepare food? I still have dye on my hands I can't get off. I believe the elk hide was tanned, if that makes any difference. Any help on the subject is appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
