Yes! Alcohol based leather dyes can be mixed. One of my personal favorites is Tandy oxblood and red at a 1:3 ratio. It's a really nice dark red. To get the look you're taking about you can work the leather with a similarly colored polish and wipe away the high spots. It can be done with the dye as well, but it is much more fussy and takes a lot more coats.
And I am sure you know this, but always, always use a test piece first.
Learn from the mistakes of others. Always a good plan.
As to your inquiry Zen_Hydra; Depending on what color you want, you can also get oil grained leather, which has those exact properties (raised/taught areas show up lighter). Though I'm not sure on the variety of colors available, due to the method in which the leather is created. In terms of leather dyes; You can also layer them with multiple coats. Sometimes if you want a richer color dyes can be re-applied to create more richer/darker colors overall, but can also be applied to the low spots.
Only leather dye I can think of that may achieve what you may be looking for is (not sure the name) but it's a type of "antique dye" that acts more as a stain than dye. It's much thicker than the alcohol dyes (like a paste) which allows you to smear it on, then buffer it out, leaving the raised areas more their natural hue. Suppose if you pre-dyed the leather in question the color you wanted, then applied the antique dye ontop, you'd be left with a potential desired result, though haven't tested it personally.
Edit: Realized I posted this response a good whole month after you were asking about it. Hopefully you were able to find a solution.
durinnmcfurren: He is using a picture of my viking equipment. He has nothing to do with me. This is a very niðinger-like act on his part! Not drengr at all.

lebleuchevalier: I just got a new Windlass sword and was surprised some of these are coming pre-sharpened from Museum Replicas. There's a big secondary bevel, but it came nice and sharp.

LoE: Lemme guess... wants a private check, no refunds. Shares stock photos. Doesn't want accountability. But has exactly whatever it is you're looking for.

LoE: Never selling it himself of course. Just a zero post guy that "knows" of someone who has one, if you'll reach out to him privately. I get tired of the scam artists. Wish they'd get arrested.
