STEP 1 - Clean the Leather and Remove Original Wax Coating:
To begin, use the Color Prep & Cleaner and Gray Scuff Pads to remove any existing wax buildup and prepare the leather for dyeing. The cleaner is specially formulated to remove dirt, grime, and wax buildup without damaging the leather. The original wax coating has been sufficiently removed when water will absorb almost instantly and the leather feels suede-like. If you have stains in the leather from Body Oils, this product will not remove them. You will need the Leather Master Degreaser product to remove any protein based stains.
STEP 2 - Condition the Leather:
Start by applying 1-2 light coats of the Leather Conditioner Cream, allowing each coat to absorb in and dry. This will get some moisture and natural oils back into the leather to help it hold the color and regain the soft and supple feel of natural leather. This step is necessary in leathers that have reached a severe fade level from the original color or has become dry.
STEP 3 - Recolor the Leather
Using the other enclosed sponge or a lint free cloth, wipe on 2-4 light coats of the Aniline Leather Dye. The dye will absorb into the leather and mix and react with what is currently there. You will want to allow the leather to dry in between each coat of Aniline Dye which is approximately 1 hour. Once the final coat of Aniline Dye has been applied, allow 24 hours of dry time before Step 4.
STEP 4 - Apply Wax Top Coat:
Using a foam paint brush or foam sponge, apply 1-2 light and even coats of the Wax Top Coat, allowing 3 hours between each coat to cure. The leather may appear dark as the Wax Top Coat is applied, but will dry to a shiny clear. Wait 24 hours after the last coat of Wax Top Coat before use.
STEP 5 - Buffing the Leather
Using the buffing cloths, just simply buff the top surface of the re-colored leather. You will want to use light pressure when buffing the leather.
- If there is staining present in the leather, re-coloring may blend it out or it could make the stain more prevalent.
- Removing staining prior to re-coloring will allow for the finishing coat to be more of an even color.
- In Leather that has reached the severe fade level or has become dry, we recommend mixing the Hydrating Cream with the Aniline Dye and applying these products together.
- If you have a different type of staining other than oils then please contact us to discuss possible cleaning solutions.
