Undyed binder after months of summer sun


This has been on a window sill in sunny room 24/7 for about three months now. Sweden is not very hot in summer, but it is light all the time so the amount of sun and light is way more than in most countries.

I have not treated it with anything, but it already had a nice patina and glow from being handled daily for 14 months. It may probably have been drier if I had done this from new.

  1. Lookin’ good……..

    You’re getting ahead of me now….

    Since I’ve been using my undyed binder and not leaving it all day by the window, patina progress has slowed down. On the other hand, I get to actually use and enjoy my binder….
