Massaguer (picture left) describes the dye process for the special,
black, custom-made saddles:
obtain the black color, the whole saddle is dyed in black with a
special dye. However, this is no easy task. It's
kind of painting a car yourself...one can easily recognize the
strokes of paint."
order to get a good dispersion of the dye, it is necessary to
oil carefully the leather first and know when it is exactly time
to apply the dye and how to buff it all over before it dries
completely so no strokes are seen. A good quality dye is
very important, specially with black color because poor quality
ones result in letting the color out into your fingers. It
would be like in "Hidalgo" when the Arab pets the
supposed black horse
on the neck and the paint gets into his hand because the horse
was originally white."
You, too, can
