    Title is supposed to be "matching" not "marching". Made an iPhone six sheath to match my other home made ensemble. Comment welcome[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    What is a good finish to put on my leather to make it 1) softer and more supple in one instances and 2) a shiny finish.

    If you want it softer you can use a number of products, neatsfoot and mink oil are good conditioners and so is obenuafs, sno seal, but all of these products make them darker too. Obenaufs and sno seal are a mix of waxes and some other stuff and do an amazing job at waterproofing. If you want a more flexible leather but not darker try Bick 4. Follow it up with some shoe polish.

    Nice. If you don't mind me asking, what's that blue circle thing?
