I don't know why I have tackblock! I've been stuck in the same place with this saddle for about a month. I think the shape is great, I don't love the shiny finish of the spray dye. It's not bad or anything, but I was hoping for the finish of a new leather saddle. Not glossy, but has a healthy sheen to it. I bought some matte sealant, but oddly enough it just enhances the shine so I won't be using that on the saddle. What to do!
Also, I need to sort out the suede knee rolls. I think I'll just do some backwards skiver, but I don't think I have anything that's the right color. Maybe just some backwards natural leather...it'll compliment the mahogany saddle tone anyway. We shall see. Going to Milwaukee today with my mom for her 2nd Mother's Day celebration, so maybe I'll feel inspired when I get home.
