57505Period Finishing for a leather costrel
- Sep 25, 2008I was wondering if anyone had a reference (or just ideas) for the
finishing of a leather bottle, costrel, etc. I just finished sewing
and forming a leather costrel and am waiting for it to dry.
My only references are a couple good websites on the construction of
leather bottles and "Black Jacks and Leather Bottells" none of which
have an argument for whether the bottles were dyed and whether there
was any exterior finishing (i.e. soaked in boiling beeswax, blanched
in boiling water, etc.).
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
