Dye a Spark’s SS?

603 Views 18 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  flechero
I have a Spark’s Summer Special that I won at their 50th Anniversary Celebration/Shoot. It has the carved top. I have not used it much as all my leather is black. After getting a Nighthawk Officers Bull I find that I like carrying it in the SS even though I normally use a Criterion or 55BN.

So I have been thinking of dying the top band and belt loop black. Am I crazy for doing this to a fantastic holster?

If my cover garment should blow open a little the brown band and loop seems more observable than the gun.

I think you can dye that leather without much trouble. Use saddle soap on it, that should open it up. The problem in my opinion is the thread will get dyed also. That would affect the overall looks of the holster.
