Nothing wrong with them, carry on and you'll put me out of business. :whistle:

Well done.

Try dying the olive over a honey or ginger, the results are a wide range of colours on the same cape.

Dying for the 1st time I guess you wont be doing that again then :D:D

Not bad at all Andy the top one reminds me of a blend I do that is almost like an amber.
What dyes are you using?

Also done some dying today (dye from Harveys Angling)

A high quality saddle that I was never going to use so I went with dark claret a colour I use a lot of.
