Using Eco-Flo Water Stain (the one in the square bottle)
Probably one of the top stains on the market today for the leathercrafter. To understand how to properly use it, I want to quote what was on the Tandy Website in 2019:
"It’s a blend of natural and synthetic waxes, dye-stuffs and binders with high penetration and dyeing power. This stain will not bleed or rub off. Colors can be mixed to form different hues. It can also be thinned with water to reduce intensity."BUT, it has to be applied properly to be effective. Remember also that it was developed as a stain to color large areas of leather.
