So I sanded down a crappy pipe I bought to refinish it and it ended up pretty pathetic. I used Feibing's leather dye (dark brown) which seemed to be the recommendation by my research. How do I get a perfect coat? Its really spotted and mottled. Some areas are darker than others. I can't seem to get it right. So whats the trick? Should I mix a squirt of water in and then just do more coats? Use less dye? Put it on a rag and buff it on? All three? I'll post pics here pretty soon of the pipe. Its sanded down a bit but it still pretty accurately shows my problem.
