This doesn't need sealing? Have you found that any of the oil rubs off? How long to dry, week?
You could try java gel stain. I used that for cabinet refinishing. You'll need a few coats, don't freak out after the first, don't rub off, just paint on. But it looks amazing when finished. My cabinets are scrub resistant, hasn't come off in 4 years.
Thank you so much for all the information! I do have a few questions. Precut strips.. what size is best? 1/4inch? and what thickness and type should I be shopping for? Do I want a 4 or an 8 or some other thickness? and do I want hardhand or softhand? apologies for all the questions ha
Hey thanks for that cord tip. Actually my student really wants to make one out of leather. is there a pre cut cord I can purchase for them?? I am not sure if we can cut one evenly out of leftover leathers like jackets etc.
Hey thanks for that! I am an art teacher whose student wants to make one of these. I found some woven belts similar to your picture at the local goodwill but the pieces of leather are only about as long as the belt, anywhere from 26-32 inches. Do we have a problem with pieces this short and would there be an alternative for my student to use that isn't too costly? Can you weave smaller pieces together and add more pieces for the inside belly? I assume the outside part has to be full length.
