Bored with natural leather? Spice things up with leather paints or stains. They offer a range of colors and finishes for a modern take on the rustic material.
Both Eco-Flo products are recommended for vegetable-tanned leather only.
Stain This water-base stain provides a beautiful finish and won’t bleed or rub off with use. Thin stain for different opacity, or mix stains to create new colors. Eco-Flo Waterstain, $13 for 8.5-oz. bottle; tandyleather.com
Paint This water-base acrylic paint provides an opaque finish, but it can be watered down for more of a tint or washed look. Eco-Flo Cova Color, $5 for 2-oz. bottle; tandyleather.com
