    Do you know anything about boiling leather?
    Does it shrink in the process? are boiled leather pieces sewn and then boiled or boiled and then sewn?
    How does it affect the tanning and dye on the leather?
    Could garment weight leather survive the process?

    Garment weight leather would turn into a chip if you used it for Cuir Bouilli. Here's as good a way as any to fake it. I made someone a secrete (armoured scull cap) using more or less this method.

    Should be fine for making your Cameo style codpiece.

    Why are you boiling it? I'll soak leather in hot water to make it more pliable before shaping it, but have never bothered throwing it on the stove.
    Generally, if leather is thin enough to sew, it's flexible enough that you won't need to shape it.

    I want the stiffness and look of boiled leather. I'd probably retreat it after the fact so that the garment is actually wearable.

    Boiling leather is only good for making armor.

    So obviously wants fetish armor.
