Be that as it may, when an entire calfskin is colored, there is an even infiltration of the color.
On the off chance that articles are to be created before the use of colors on a few sections of the article, it is prudent that openings in items, for example, belts, lashes, and so forth should be punched before the use of the colors since colors solidify calfskin. Additionally, the colors will shading and seal the opening edges influencing them to uniform. Coloring must be completed before the settling of any discoveries, for example, snaps, bolts, clasps, and so on. The calfskin surface must be free from any remote issue.

There are a few methods for coloring calfskin and cowhide articles. In this segment, the accompanying methods will be examined:
1. Entire cover up
2. Switch or tissue side
3. Prompted grain
1. Entire cover up-
This is the utilization of the color alcohol on the whole calfskin. It is imperative to have enough amount of the color that will be adequate to color the entire stow away. In the event that the color runs out, it will be hard to get a similar shade of calfskin even in the wake of coloring the rest of the parts with a similar shade of the color.

It is essential to color them, particularly if the calfskin to be utilized for creating satchel folds, belts, and so forth where the tissue side of the cowhide will be appeared. It must be noticed that the infiltration of the color alcohol is constrained to the tissue side. The color instrument for oil and soul dissolvable colors must be very much showered in mineral oil. The color is then gently brushed over the substance side of the cowhide. This gives the tissue side a shallow surface shading maintaining a strategic distance from superfluous seeping to the officially colored grain side.
3. Initiated grain-
This is the making of a grained impact on calfskin by the utilization of colors. In this coloring procedure, the color utensil is left untreated in light of the fact that it gives the best grained impact. One method for making the fake grains on the calfskin surface is by plunging the tips of an overwhelming sheep fleece and delicately stroking just the tips over the cowhide. Another way is utilizing a solid wire brush to apply strokes over the calfskin. On the off chance that the squeezing is done sufficiently hard, the swarms of the wire brush will groove the cowhide and make a finished grain on its surface.
This is the procedure of coloring a cowhide with two hues joined (cross). The main hued color is connected on the cowhide after which the second shading is connected, bringing about another hued impact. For example, red colored over officially colored cowhide in the blue color will give a purpled impact. Different cross coloring impact incorporates:
Red over purple= Wine
Red over yellow= Red
Darker over yellow= Light dark colored
Yellow over dull blue= Blue-green
Pink over orange= Profound orange
This is the coloring of layers of cowhide to be overlaid and utilized for the creation of articles, for example, jewelry pendants, divider reliefs and sculptural structures. Fascinating dimensional impacts can be made through the coloring to improve the general standpoint of the articles.
