Crafting of Leather

Leather can be crafted into art objects using shaping or coloring techniques. At times both the techniques can be used in leather crafting. Leather is dyed using alcohol or spirit based dyes. These get absorbed into the leather very quickly and carry the pigment deep into the material.

Stamping is done by striking the leather surface with a mallet. The crafted leather is conditioned with oil to make it water proof and prevent fibers from deforming.
