Leather Preservative Experiment
« on: October 14, 2011, 09:30:20 am »
I'll keep this running for a few months, and leave the samples outside to brave the elements.

I have nailed four offcuts of natural leather from our leather belts to a plank.

1) No preservative
2) Mustang Paste
3) Obenaufs Heavy Duty LP
4) Obenaufs Leather Oil

Great idea, I'm always intrigued by the different effects of different preservers. Should be interesting.
