Dye the holster

I use Fiebing’s leather dye that I buy from Tandy Leather.  They carry applicators as well.  I give it two coats, then let it dry overnight.  Then I sometimes give it a third coat.  I also dye the inside of the holster, using cotton swabs to get down into the small crevices.  If you want a lighter color, you can dilute the dye with water.  For instance, if I want a light tan, I take a brown dye and dilute it 1:5 or more with water.  I use a piece of sheepskin to apply all dyes other than black.
