I just ordered a half-case from Smallrig that I will try to colour Moss green. Photos to follow when I get it.

Looks nice...are you going to do the other as well? If so, same color?
My reason for tackling this is to differentiate them. Experience tells me that just the top covers sometimes isn’t enough to tell which camera I am grabbing out of the bag… That’s why I have different straps on them as well. I like the feel of the halfcase better than the arca-plate with the finger grip I have for both cameras for studio work.

I used chemicals and a self-sealing colourant from Furniture Clinic. The stripper is called Leather Prep, followed by Alcohol Cleaner and finally the colourant. The shadow of green is called Forest Green (GRN08).
I used a heat gun between the layers to set the colourant. I needed three layers, applied with a sponge, to get the even coverage I wanted.
