Thank you. I'm glad it communicates that. It's pretty much the look I've been trying to accomplish.
I actually buy the leather dyed. There is a store quite a drive away from here who has an incredible of amount of leather in a huge variety of colours. I would like to try my hand on dying leather myself, but he only sells undyed sheep or extremely thick leather. Sadly he has nothing inbetween. I usually do use a lot of finishes, grease and colour wax for adding a bit more effect.
