Stormy - working with leather?

Hi Stormy! I saw mentions in other posts of you being a leather artist - is that true? I'm curious about dyeing leathers, and see a lot of posts in other forums about using Tarrago leather to dye bags (and the before-and-after pics generally look pretty fantastic).

The Tarrago website says you can use their dyes on any color of leather - they say you can use white dye on black leather, though I find that questionable. Do you know whether it's possible to use a metallic dye, like a platinum color or something like that, on top of a matte black leather to add a sheen or nice finish (and even a bit of waterproofing)?

Before sacrificing an old leather bag or wallet to my experimentation, I thought I'd ask an expert to see if it's worth bothering. Thanks!
