    Jun 13, 2007, 8:19 AM - Re-coloring or Dyeing Jango Gloves #1

    I just recieved these gloves yesterday in the grotto blue:

    has anyone attempted to re-color or dye them to get them to a closer color match? If so what did you use?

    At $70 a pair I can't see buying another pair for a do over.

    Thanks

    Jango Newbie has a thread here on coloring a Jango vest and gloves with SEM Color Coat. I'm currently using it to make ammo pouches. It's a spray can, about $10, a good range of colors, and goes on vinyl. SEM's website has a list of suppliers, nothing in Bossier City but try an auto paint store. Good Luck.

    You can't truly recolor leather unless its a spray like Boba Phat is talking about. Even then it will crack over time. However, you can darken the leather with any oil product. Try Neats Foot Oil.
