    Hi!

    I was making a music binder, but as soon as I wet the leather, it started looking like it grew the measles. The face itself just has a couple spots, but the edging strips I cut (and soaked in a bowl rather than sponged) look horrid.

    I *really* didn't think it could have happened so quickly. It literally showed up within twenty minutes, in an air conditioned workroom. Is it possible the leather already had a mold problem that wasn't noticable until it was wet?

    And either way.. is it possible to reclaim this project, or do I have to just get new leather and start all over?

    This sounds really bizarre, especially happening so quickly. Can you take some digital photos and upload them so we cna see what you mean?
