    Okay folks, need your tips and tricks on how to really weather leather. I remember seeing some pictures of Seeker's ammo belt but I can't seem to find them anymore.
    Pics would REALLY be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    - Jorge

    Yup,sandpaper is awesome. You can also use a wet paper towel and dab it in waterbased black acrylic paint, then kinda distribute it a little in the paper towel, and rub it across the leather.
