    I understand like what Antonio Celemin wrote that you can get rid of this finishing coating by sanding it off. ________________________________ From:

      One of my students was a farrier & leather worker & we successfully marbled leather in a class. She said that most leathers available to the general public have a finishing coating on the surface which makes it more difficult to marble. Locate leather before that final additive is processed.

      Treat the leather as paper-- alum it, marble it, rinse & dry. Found that stones matched the "look" of the natural leather best or large, less-complicated patterns. Have marbled leather on my own & discovered that the more intricately combed patterns transferred not as well to the leather.

      Good luck! Hope this helps!

      Creatively,
