I dunno, I was researching something called atom wax that I bought cause that "master leather maker" guy told me to. I looked it up on the net and it said a lot of people use that to seal. The neatsfoot oil is used to kind of seal it first. But i don't like neatsfoot oil at all! It changed all the color on my skirt and my house smelled like really old nasty bacon for several hours. I know two pieces were cooked a little too long. But regardless, we're going to pray that the sun comes out for several days and dries some of it up.Zam I Aint thinks it might help, but man, that oil's really cooked in there. I am going to cut up more squares in the mean time. I really think it's not salvageable. On the bottle, it said it may darken colors, but man! I didn't think it would be THAT dark. Whatever you do, don't use neatsfoot oil to pre-seal it. Use something else, I know that they have alternatives. Look up atom wax and see if you can find a better "process". I would go with the ideas that are praised the most. Goes to show how I am always doing things trial by fire most of the time. Only this time I didn't "test" like I usually do. Please learn from my mistakes yall.
