Preparing the leather? Answered

Hey,my name is zakwan
I never done any project on leather yet and i just doing research about leather now
Your class is really helping a newbie like me,thanks a lot.
My question is do we need to prepare the leather before we tools it?
I read in other article that they casing the leather
Some put the leather in warm water
Some spray the water on the leather
Some put some oil on their leather
Most of them say to avoid the dry leather and make it easier to tool with
So, for chrome tanned do we need to do anything before we tool it?

If you are using chrome tanned leather, you can't really tool it, but with veg tanned leather you should case the leather before tooling by applying water with a sponge. See my answer below :)
