    Nov 18, 2005, 12:32 AM - My Girth Belt ! PICTURE ADDED ! #1

    I was not able to get a mohair belt, so I gave my try to a syntheic one. As we already know, the regular way of tying didnīt work too well. So I tryed something new. I think this hasnīt been mentioned here yet.

    My belt was originaly white, then I added two layers of BORDEUX RED HAIR COLOR. I think it came out well.

    My wife has used that shade on her hair before.
    I like it.

    Heres the promised picture. It turned out a little to dark, I guess. Might give it another turn with a more red color.

    That turned out REAALY well, Scoob! I never though of hair dye, nor whether it would take to synthetic fiber! Good job! I think the color looks spot on. The goal from what I can tell is a burgundy, marroon, reddish brown; so you're right there.

    Thanks ! Well, in that case I will leave it that way and just darken/weather up my pouch belt a little, its way to bright compared to the girth.

    I also consider doing a coat of dull transparent spray, maybe I can get rid of the shine of the material.

    Heres my finised Girth Belt.

    Colored, little weather, added leather straps. Bound the strap like I bind my horse reigns.
