    Leather loop band - possible to change the colour?

    I just got a deal on a leather loop band but would like to change the colour Has anyone ever tried this before? I don't much care for the brown colour & was thinking that something like black shoe polish might do the trick. Love to hear if anyone has ever tried something along these lines.

    In my limited experience shoe polish is something you do not want.
    Leather dye is more appropriate. I think you need a "water proof"
    leather dye. You might check with a shoe repair shop if such a
    business still exists near your location.

    If you run out of other options you might consider using the handy
    pocket bluing machine.

    I think you can find the official version at Walmart or Amazon or a sporting
    goods store. As always test first in a small hidden area. On smooth leather
    wiping over the treated area with a cloth slightly wet with alcohol or acetone
    might smooth out streaks.

    Let us know how it turns out.


    Thanks,
