    Will heating a dark earth back strap to flatten it change the color? I'll be using a heat gun not a candle.

    I heated the back of my dark earth with a candle and it gave it a slightly different color, an oily look. I used some steel wool tho and it seemed to take it off pretty good. I am assuming the back straps are the same material as the frame, but I don't know for sure.
