    Anyone with experience dyeing and sealing leather?

    I am working on a small project re-dyeing a leather watch strap. And I am having some problems with bleeding of the dye.

    It was a originally a medium brown color that I applied a darker cordovan dye to. After drying for a few hours, I applied Acrylic Resolene to seal it.

    After buffing the leather with a dry cloth, no dye comes off, but w
    hen I wipe the strap with a damp cloth, it bleeds a little.
    The strap is fine if totally dry, but when I wear the strap, and sweat a little, the dye comes off and is left on my wrist.

    Any help would be much appreciated!
