    Hi guys

    I went to the LFS the other day for RO and noticed these amazing finger leathers, orange, a slight yellow, red and pink 1s i've also seen some blue 1s on the net (blue deviles finger leather). I never have time to ask what are the names of them. Do these colors sound like natural colors of finger leathers if So does any1 know the names for them, or are they dyed leathers?
    What are natural colors for finger leathers?

    Some are natural, but most dyed, which ain't good.

    Kavir are u sure they weren't dendronephthya's? They are pretty common in those colours. Wouldn't rule out dyed as I have seen many dyed corals come in at our LFS too.

    Ok So i went to the LFS again 2day for some RO and find out what were the leathers i saw. Unfortunately wen i went there, there where only 3of those leathers, 1 orange and 1 that seems to be fading it's orange and turnin white and all sulked, So i assumed it was dyed and never bother to ask what were they.

    Lol another thing i over heard jst made me laugh, the price of LR we pay is nuts and wen the LFS makes R170 profit per kg. But i guess they got all these other things to pay for as well to get it to them.

    This awesome xenia is pink and blue from the side and metallic blue and orange from the top. A bit off topic, but awsome colours for softies nonetheless.
