That's a lot of leather swatches. Did they label each one? Would scanning them work?
No, they didn't label em. I only can tell Black, Blue, Dark Brown and Oxblood...lol. I'm not sure what you mean by scanning them. Actually, looking at my photo, the colors are pretty close. In the top row, the fourth from the left is off.
Well, nice to be able to see them all anyway. By scan, I mean put them in a flatbed scanner to create a digital image of them. Probably beyond the call of duty... ;-)
Whats wrong with gemming? I raised this question some time back to a well know cordwainer here and he couldn't see any? I'm curious to know the drawbacks?
This is going to be good
In my Slick Rick voice, "Here we go!"
The debate on gemming, in sum:
Is the one fifth from the left, brown? Or oxblood? Thanks!
The darkest brown is third from the right. I am going to try and figure them out based on some other information on here. I have all ten leather colors that Vass uses. The subtlety of the color difference is amazing.
Has anyone ever noticed how little different colors are used by Vass? It strikes me how many different colors JL and Edward Green use in comparison to Vass.
Does anyone know good European tanneries for leather, similar to, for example museum calf or misty calf etc.?
Gyaish, Friday when I'm back home I'll be able to help you sort out the correct color! I have some swatches with the names writtin on the back.
Many thanks JK - comforting to know.
Please consider hi-res SLR pics (in sunlight) with labels. You would be the most exemplary gentleman....
Contribute to the DSLR fund and you would be a most exemplary gentleman. I haven't replace my t2i, too busy buying shoes. 1st step is to get them labeled.
