Thanks for the good news
But really, I do appreciate the response.
I was afraid the drying process would damage the leather. I will not roast my glove in the oven. My wife has suggested I lay it out in the sun for several days, turning it every few hours. That is what she does with her chili peppers (she is Thai) to naturally dry them. Perhaps this natural method may not be as harsh on the leather. Since the glove may be a write-off at this point, I don't really have anything to lose.
My only concern is that the drying process may "set" the darker coloring now affecting the glove, kind of like a red wine stain (which you want to keep wet until you clean it, otherwise it may set permanently).
I have attached a few pics that may help illustrate this discussion.
The first shows the glove as it currently stands. Please note original leather color can be detected in the deeper creases. The second is a close-up of this. The third picture demonstrated how pressure applied to a point from underneath in a finger tunnel can bring out the more natural original color.
Because of the phenomenon illustrated in the third picture I am guessing that the color is limited more to the surface and has not penetrated. Unfortunately, moisture seems to have infused the leather and possibly the padding underneath.
I welcome any additional advice or comments / corrections to my suppositions.
I will post pics after the "suntan treatment" if warranted.
