- Apr 4, 2005It is possible that it is referring to the decrative impressions. For
example, if you tool wet leather, you get the same sort of
polymerization that you with heating. If you take a carefully carved
mold, I nelieve (since I've never actually done this myself) you can
take the wet leather, force it to fill that mold under pressure, and
get the same decorative polymorization effect that you see in that
picture, and it will retain the shape it's hardened into.
This would be water haredend leather shaped under pressure. - which is
what we see a lot of in Waterers books.
