Experiments kombucha


#1

Hi!
For my experiment with kombucha leather, i tried to make the dried leather as waterproof as i could.
(The numbers here don’t match the numbers on the kombucha)
I used:

  1. CA-VA SEUL W.&V. BEST.

  2. CA-VA SEUL SNKR PROTECTOR

  3. KIWI WAX FLUID

  4. KIWI WAX FIXED

  5. RUBBER/LEER GLUE

  6. TEXTIEL GLUE

  7. AQUA BLOCK RUBSON

  8. PARAFINE FIXED

  9. PARAFINE FLUID

  10. HG TEXTIEL 1 WITH WATER

  11. HG TEXTIEL 2 WITH WATER

  12. HG TEXTIEL 1 WITHOUT WATER

  13. HG TEXTIEL 2 WITHOUT WATER

The numbers 3, 4 were pretty waterproof, but not for a very long time. Number 7 was totally waterproof, but not natural…

The others were not waterproof at all, so the kombucha started to grow again if I added water…

Interesting… It’s super important but I haven’t seen much DIY experimentation with it. What do you think makes the KIWI WAX work so well? Is it the compatibility with kombucha or the product itself that excels?
