    I tried this with a laser printed image, %100 pure acetone and the best I got was lighter leather look with spots of black. The worst parts the leather stuck to the paper and came up with it. Tips?

    Try this instead. It seems ink jet printers work best for this.

    Hi, is this working with ink printer image ? Best Regards Heikki

    Maybe, you can try. I have only laser printer :(

    Hi, it do not work !

    :( Try at laser printer.

    If you were dying you leather, do you think you'd do this before or after the dye was applied? Also, what effect, if any, does the acetone have on the ability to add a finish to the leather?

    It all depends on what dyes you use. I am dying leather and adding finish all was ok. I made a print before dying leather.

    you're welcome
