I would think a fabric or leather dye would be your best bet. It's not going to fix it per se but it'll look better

Hey! I had this same question when I started out. I've done several pipes and Fiebings Leather Dye is what I used for each one. It's fairly inexpensive and you get plenty to make a dozen pipes.

I would sand my pipes down to around 400 grit, then dye with black, then start the sanding until it was almost entirely gone. Then I'd dye the color I wanted the pipe to be. It causes the black to really accent the grain and causes it to pop.

Good luck with your pipe!

This will be my 3rd stressless recliner. I've used Fiebings Dye on my first two that were badly sun faded and it worked really well. I think I paid $40 or $50 for those and thought it was a killer deal.

This one shouldn't need dye, just a thorough scrubbing and conditioning. The wood was fortunately just caked in dust, I got very lucky on this one.

Hello, Everyone. I am looking for help to fix my Bible.

I just got a Bible and the gold lettering on the spine was way off center, so much off center that I decided to look up how to remove the lettering. I learned that I could use rubbing alcohol to remove it and that's what I did, but it took the dye off the leather as well resulting in a less than flattering look. After it took the dye off of one part of the spine, I tried to remove more for the sake of consistency and it just turned out a disaster before I stopped and decided to look for help.


Here is a picture of the damage I have done:


Here is some information that you can hopefully use to better help me: The Bible's cover is made of "Ironed Calfskin." The cover's color is black. When I was rubbing it, the dye that came off seemed to have a somewhat thick consistency. Before coming here I looked at products, but was overwhelmed. Here is one product I found called "Fiebing's Leather Dye":



But it says it's "For use on vegetable tanned or unfinished leather." I am not sure if my Bible is "vegetable tanned" or not. I also read about oil based and alcohol based dyes and don't know which is best.


If someone could point me in the direction of a good, high-quality dye and whatever I need to apply I would be super appreciative. This Bible is not just a show Bible to put on my bookshelf, but it is one I'll carry with me often and I'll place it on my lap to read, so if you don't mind I would like the dye to be as durable as possible so it does not easily rub off on my dresses or anything like that.
