    Re: NEW WAY TO DIE GIRTH BELTS!!!

    Ok so I got a girth belt that was used and has been washed. Do I still need to soak it in acetone? I only want to do this once. I thinking I'm gonna do it just to be on the safe side but if I could save some money that would be great. Thanks

    After failing with dyes also I gave this method a try. Still dont know if i got the color down, here's how my ESB version belt come, still need to clean the buckles but what y'all think? In person its more of a rust color with the red undertone but picture makes it seem a light brown.

    Re: NEW WAY TO DYE GIRTH BELTS!!!

    Thanks for this, i was actually wondering how i was going to dye the belt! I've tried before with Dylon, but it was rubbish.

    Do you mind if i ask how you did the stitching on the belt? I just can't seem to keep it tight.

    Thanks again!

    So I tried this method as suggested using Latex stain. Worked well!
    I noticed someone stated they were able to work out the stiffness in the belt after it was dried?

    uh, was it this stiff? This is about how crispy I like my bacon! And this is after much flexing and bending to try and loosen up the fibers. Maybe I used too much stain? Maybe wrong material belt ("all natural mohair" ordered from Dover Saddlery)?
