Dye the strap using a felt wrapped wooden block. Coat the felt with antique gel, be careful only apply a bit of paint with a wool dauber or paint brush. You don’t want the dye to seep into the tooling. Repeat applying dye until you achieve the shade you like.
With a piece of fabric wipe away excess dye.
