Would enjoy hearing your thoughts and perspective. In the pics below, the sheath at top is one I had made previously. It was shaped and formed in the oven, then dyed, which is my standard routine. So the first one on the left I shaped and dyed then formed in the oven. Might have cooked it too high or too long as well, but it didn't seem to be what I was after. Middle one I shaped, formed in oven, then dyed, as normal. Last one on the right, I dyed it as a flat piece of leather, then shaped and formed in oven. It has a kind of marble look to it which I like.
