Leathercraft is the practice of making leather into craft objects or works of art, using shaping
techniques, coloring techniques or both.

Leather dyeing usually involves the use of spirit- or alcohol-based dyes where alcohol
quickly gets absorbed into moistened leather, carrying the pigment deep into the surface.
"Hi-liters" and "Antiquing" stains can be used to add more definition to patterns. These have
pigments that will break away from the higher points of a tooled piece and so pooling in the
background areas give nice contrasts. Leaving parts unstained also provides a type of
contrast.

Alternatives to spirit stains might include a number of options. Shoe polish can be used to
dye and preserve leather. Oils such as neatsfoot or linseed can be applied to preserve
leather but darkens them. A wax paste more often than not serves as the final coat.

Leather stamping involves the use of shaped implements (stamps) to create an imprint
onto a leather surface, often by striking the stamps with a mallet.

Commercial stamps are available in various designs, typically geometric or
representative of animals. Most stamping is performed on vegetable tanned leather that
has been dampened with water, as the water makes the leather softer and able to be
compressed by the design being pressed or stamped into it using a press. After the leather
has been stamped, the design stays on the leather as it dries out, but it can fade if the
leather becomes wet and is flexed. To make the impressions last longer, the leather is
conditioned with oils and fats to make it waterproof and prevent the fibers from deforming.

Leather shaping or molding consists of soaking a piece of leather in hot or room
temperature water to greatly increase pliability and then shaping it by hand or with the use of
objects or even molds as forms. As the leather dries it stiffens and holds its shape. Carving
and stamping may be done prior to molding. Dying however must take place after molding,
as the water soak will remove much of the color. Molding has become popular among
hobbyists whose crafts are related to fantasy, goth/steampunk culture and cosplay.

Leather painting differs from leather dyeing in that paint remains only on the surface
while dyes are absorbed into the leather. Due to this difference, leather painting techniques
are generally not used on items that can or must bend nor on items that receive friction,
such as belts and wallets because under these conditions, the paint is likely to crack and
flake off. However, latex paints can be used to paint such flexible leather items. In the main
though, a flat piece of leather, backed with a stiff board is ideal and common, though
three-dimensional forms are possible so long as the painted surface remains secured.

Acrylic paint is a common medium, often painted on tooled leather pictures, backed with
wood or cardboard, and then framed. Unlike photographs, leather paintings are displayed
without a glass cover, to prevent mold.
