Dye a Spark’s SS?

611 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.

Not rocket science. Wipe the band with a little alcohol and use Fiebings with a small dauber or a Q tip. The stitching will take some dye as well. I'd probably do it 2 tone - lighter tone on the body darker (done last) in the band.
