zippy14u I think you did a good job on dyeing. Does the after-process makes the leather becomes stiff? Will they break and crack again just like the Bal leather should be?

good job!

what was it before?
The original was supposed to be "Naturel" but the seller dyed in "White" ecause she thought the bag was "yellowing". The closest I could get was dying the bag a "Vanilla" color. You really can't tell the difference when you compare the outside with the inside tag.

Actually, all the "veins" still show, which is a good sign. After the bag dried, I put a "top coat" sealer to preserve the color and so it won't rub off. After it dried, I rubbed the bag down with a soft cloth to remove any residue, and lubed the bag with Lubriderm. I've go it loaded with "books" to weigh it down and loosen the up the skin. I've checked it a couple of times and it's softening. (read this tip here on "breaking in the B Bag)
