Alloy Repair Kit

For Scuffs and Scrapes

  1. Wash wheels of all dirt and brake dust deposits.
  2. Keeping repair area to a minimum, use wet & dry paper 240 grade to remove burrs and scuffs. Then, use wet & dry paper 400 grade to reduce sanding marks.
  3. Clean sanded and surrounding area with an alcoholic wipe thoroughly and allow to dry.
  4. Apply Alloy Filler/Primer No 1 in thin layers to build up the damaged area, making sure not to build too high. Allow sufficient drying times between applications.
  5. Use wet & dry paper 800 grade to sand down filler/ primer creating a smooth finish. Clean with an alcoholic wipe thoroughly and allow to dry.
  6. Apply the Alloy Silver No 2 in thin layers and allow to dry between each layer. One or two layers is usually sufficient. If you have built up too much paint you can use wet & dry paper 1500 grade to reduce build-up.
  7. Apply Alloy Lacquer Finish No. 3 over the painted area for the finishing touch and to add protection. Use wet & dry paper 1500 grade to reduce build-up if necessary.

  5. Use wet & dry paper 800 grade to sand down filler/primer creating a smooth finish. Clean with an alcoholic wipe thoroughly and allow to dry.
  6. Apply the Alloy Silver No 2 in thin layers and allow to dry between each layer. One/two layers are usually sufficient. If you have built up too much paint you can use wet & dry paper 1500 grade to reduce build-up.
  7. Apply Alloy Lacquer Finish No. 3 over the painted area for the finishing touch and to add protection. Use wet & dry paper 1500 grade to reduce build-up if necessary.

Top Tips from The Scratch Doctor

Always use water with the wet & dry paper, and deep wet during application, as this will stop it clogging. If clogging occurs during sanding this means that the Alloy Filler/Primer, Alloy Silver or Alloy Lacquer Finish has not had sufficient drying time.

  • If possible work with the wheel off the vehicle. This will make access a lot easier and will prevent paint from running. Make sure you seek professional advice if you are not competent at removing the wheel before starting work.
  • In colder weather, the Alloy Filler/Primer, Alloy Silver and Alloy Lacquer Finish will take longer to dry than in warmer weather.

N.B. For safety reasons, we recommend wearing protective gloves, eyewear and facemask throughout all procedures. Keep contents of kit out of the reach of children.

Ceramic Repair Kit Instructions

Colour Mixing Guide

IMPORTANT: Ensure you shake Leather Base colour and tints well. Use the measuring pipette to add tints.

INSTRUCTIONS

Pour some of the base colour into one of the mixing cups. Fill it about halfway (15ml). Then, dip a cotton wool bud into the colour and apply a tiny amount to an inconspicuous area. Dry with a hair drier or let it dry naturally for 5 minutes. Once dry, if the colour does not match your leather follow the instructions to either lighten or darken the colour so that it is a perfect match.

HOW THIS WORKS

You will add (according to instructions) a small amount of the tint(s) to the base colour and mix it together. You then re-apply a small amount of colour with a cotton wool bud to the leather and let it dry. If it matches, use this colour to make the repair; If the colour does not match, keep following the colour matching instructions and re-apply the new colour to the leather until it matches. Also, see the heading ‘Adjusting the Sheen’ to help match the sheen of the leather as well as the colour.

Follow the instructions for your leather colour as shown below. Once you have matched the colour, proceed to step three.

Fabric Dye

For best results, the material you are working with must be the same colour or lighter than the dye colour you are applying. For better colour coverage and absorption, we recommend you dilute Fabric Dye with Colour Boost Fabric Penetration Solution. Results may vary. Always patch test on an inconspicuous area before use. This product is suitable for use on natural fabrics. It is not suitable for synthetic materials. Do not use on waterproof or protected materials without adding Colour Boost.

Our Fabric Dye is microfibre reactive, which means it works by curing into the fibres of the material. As a result, our Fabric Dye is most suitable for use on natural fabrics e.g cotton or wool.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Clean the surface using a fabric cleaner before applying any dye. Shake the Fabric Dye thoroughly before use. Dilute the Fabric Dye with 50% Colour Boost Fabric Penetrating Solution e.g 500ml of Fabric Dye to 250ml of Colour Boost. This will help the Fabric Dye soak into stubborn or protected fibres.
  2. Fabric Dye can be applied by brush, cloth, spray or by submerging the fabric in a bucket. If submerging, the longer you leave it the better – we recommend a minimum of 2 hours. Tougher materials with thicker fibres can take 3-4 hours. Leave the item to dry for at least 1 hour between each coat. Do not rinse the item after applying the dye as it takes 3 days to cure completely.
  3. The fabric can now be left to dry naturally. You can speed up drying time with a hairdryer if needed. The fabric will take several hours to dry and be useable. The product will continue to cure over the following 72 hours.
Full Leather Recolouring Kit

Please read the instructions all the way through before starting. We recommend that you carry out the following procedures in a ventilated room and cover up all furniture and flooring. Also please make a note of the colour/code on the bottle of colourant – this is crucial if you are to order more.

CAUTION ALWAYS TEST ON AN INCONSPICUOUS AREA FIRST.

R10 Highly Flammable, R36 Irritating to eyes, R67 Vapours may cause drowsiness or dizziness S2 Keep out of reach of children, S7 Keep container tightly closed, S24/25 Avoid contact with skin or eyes, S37 Wear suitable gloves.

PREPERARTION

1. Please use the gloves supplied.

2. With furniture, it is very common for manufacturers to use a cheaper grade of leather on the back and the sides of the furniture. Please ensure you DO NOT prep this part of the leather/furniture in the normal way to avoid damage. All that is necessary on these sections is to wipe the leather down with a cloth dampened in the alcohol cleaner. Give all the sides and back of the furniture a good rub down with the alcohol cleaner (applying pressure as you do so). DO NOT FOLLOW STEP 3 ON THE BACK OR SIDES

3. The next step is to ‘prep’ the leather. This involves removing the manufactured finish/protective coating from the surface. This finish is a transparent layer sealing in the original colour. To remove this layer, rub the leather down with the leather prep, cotton wool and the abrasive pad. Do this by placing the cotton wool on the abrasive pad and soaking them in the leather prep. Fold over the cotton balls and begin to scrub the surface of the leather.

When the colour is transferred onto the pad this indicates that the finish coating is being removed, make sure this is apparent all over the leather. At this stage you should also notice that the surface becomes rough, this is important as it allows more adhesion for the colourant to bond too. After this wipe the surface of the leather down with a cloth dampened with leather prep, this will remove all residues from the leather.

Creases can sometimes cause problems if their coating has cracked within them. Pay extra careful attention when prepping the creases to make sure you remove all the cracked coating from within them.

4. Using the alcohol cleaner, dampen a cotton cloth and then wipe this over all the leather furniture. This process will remove any silicones or waxes that are soluble in alcohol. The prep removes any silicones or waxes that are soluble in solvents. MAKE SURE TO THOROUGHLY WIPE THE LEATHER DOWN.

APPLYING THE COLOUR

5. Wait 1 hour for any excess prep and alcohol cleaner to evaporate. Shake the bottle of colourant for 2-3 minutes to ensure it is well mixed. Pour a small amount onto the sponge and apply to the leather. The idea is to sponge on a thin coat or colour working it into any gaps, creases and hard to reach areas. Apply light pressure here to work the colourant into the grain. If you apply to much pressure, you may get some foam of colour the surface, this is not a problem, just wipe it away gently with the sponge. Lightly dab the colour onto the leather without applying pressure. DO NOT WIPE OR BRUSH THE COLOUR ON.

DO NOT try to achieve a perfect finish with the first coat of colourant (it will be patchy). Wait about 20 minutes for the first coat to thoroughly dry. You can speed up the drying time with a hairdryer. Apply another 2/3 coats of colour the same way as before, allowing each one to dry thoroughly first.

APPLYING THE FINISH

7. This stage is to apply the sealant/finish to the leather you have chosen. This 1st coat of sealant/finish is applied by the sponge. Apply gently (again dabbing it) so as not to remove any of the colourant. Apply the 1st coat very thinly.

8. Apply the 2nd/3rd coat slightly thicker ensuring the previous coat is dry before applying the next. Once you have completed this stage, allow to dry for about 1 hour and wipe the leather over with a cotton cloth to remove any roughness. Wait 1 day before using the furniture. To maintain the leather, use our Leather Protection Conditioner, this can be purchased online but please wait 7 days before doing this.

Glass Repair Kit
  1. Obtain an electric or cordless drill. Max Speed up to 2000 rpm. For automotive applications, it is advisable to mask off the bulkhead area (this is where the wipers are fixed). Also, mask off any paintwork that will be in close proximity to the damaged area during the repair. You will require masking tape and paper (not supplied).
  2. Clean the damaged area, making sure it is completely dirt and dust-free. Fix the backing plate to the drill and fix a felt polishing pad (fit soft side to Velcro). Shake bottle vigorously ensuring all slurry has been mixed. Always shake bottle between applications. Carefully apply some Glass Polish compound to the pad, start the drill and place the face of the felt pad to the damaged area, making sure to move the pad with a rocking motion across the scratch.
  3. When the Glass Polish compound dries out, you should also stop the drill. Wet the pad to reinvigorate the compound or add more compound and continue until the scratch or marks are completely gone. Note: During hot weather, high temperatures can heat the glass and dry the felt pad very quickly.
  4. Remember to keep the polishing pad wet and periodically use the sponge to wipe the area clean to see if the damage is still present. When the damage has been removed, clean the sponge out, and using it wet remove any residue from the glass. If any of the Glass Polish compound has come into contact with car paint, lift it off with the sponge very wet.
  5. The polishing cloth can be used where the drill cannot reach. It can also be used for domestic glass applications. However, care should be taken when applying pressure to windows and glass furniture, as there could be a risk of breaking the glass.

WARNING: Avoid the Glass Polish compound coming into contact with skin or eyes. If contact does occur wash the area with plenty of water. Glass Polish compound contains Cerium Oxide.

Do not keep the pad in contact with the glass for more than 20 seconds at a time or the glass will get hot and might crack.

Leather Colour Coat Kit

We recommend that you read through these instructions to familiarise yourself before beginning your repair.

This kit is designed for small touch up areas where the leather has faded/worn/peeled. This kit is not suitable to re-colour a large area. Coverage 60cm x 60cm

Before colouring your leather, please ensure that you thoroughly clean the leather. A clean leather surface will ensure best results.

  1. Prepare the Leather If the leather has any protection, this has to be removed to allow colourant to adhere to the leather. To test this, put a tiny drop of water onto the damaged area and see if it soaks in. Protection is present if water does not soak in. To remove protection, apply some methylated spirit or white spirit to the cloth or cotton bud (for small repair areas), and thoroughly clean the damaged area. Only prep the area you are re-colouring.
  2. Matching the colour If the kit includes tints, please refer to the mixing guide included. Always remember to test new colours in an inconspicuous area before carrying out the repair.
  3. Applying the colour Apply some colour to the application sponge and dab the colour onto the repair area. A sponge is best for larger areas but if it is just a small scratch you can apply the colour using one of the cotton wool buds in the kit. Some colours will require to be built up by applying a few layers of colour; allow each layer to fully dry before applying additional layers until the area is fully covered and you are happy with the finish.
  4. Applying the Finish Before applying the finish, ensure that the colour is completely dry. If there are two finishes included in your kit, you will select as follows: If your leather has a shiny finish, use the Gloss Finish, if your leather is dull use the Matt Finish. For Satin finishes (neither Dull nor Shiny), mix the matt and gloss together in a 50/50 ratio. Pour the finish into a mixing cup. Using an application sponge, dab the finish gently onto the repaired area. Do not wipe on. Ensure finish is evenly applied all over the repaired area. Allow the Leather Finish to dry thoroughly before using the leather. We recommend 1 light coat of finish, followed by one heavy coat of finish.

Colour Mixing Guide

IMPORTANT: Ensure Leather Base colour and tints are well shaken. Use the measuring pipette to add tints.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Pour some of the base colour into one of the mixing cups. Fill it about halfway (15ml). Then dip a cotton wool bud into the colour and apply a tiny amount to an inconspicuous area. Dry with a hairdryer or let it dry naturally for 5 minutes. Once dry, if the colour does not match your leather follow the instructions to either lighten or darken the colour so that it is a perfect match.

HOW THIS WORKS

You will add (as instructed) a small amount of the tint(s) to the base colour and mix it together. You then re-apply a small amount of colour with a cotton wool bud to the leather and let it dry. If it matches, use this colour to make the repair; If the colour does not match, keep following the colour matching instructions and re-apply the new colour to the leather until it matches. Also, see the heading ‘Adjusting the Sheen’ to help match the sheen of the leather as well as the colour.

Follow the instructions for your leather colour as shown below. Once you have matched the colour, proceed to step three.

ADJUSTING THE SHEEN

Once you have a close colour match, if the colour is too shiny for the leather, slowly mix in the matt finish until it takes the shine away. Add a small amount (2ml), mix thoroughly, then apply some to the leather and dry. If it needs more, slowly mix in more matt finish until it matches perfectly. DO NOT MIX THE GLOSS FINISH IN WITH THE COLOUR, THIS WILL NOT INCREASE THE SHINE.

Leather Degreaser

WARNING: THIS PRODUCT IS EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS. ALWAYS READ INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE. ALWAYS PLACE AND USE DEGREASER ON A SUITABLE SURFACE.

  1. Using a paintbrush, spread the degreaser onto the stained area and allow it to dry (drying takes up to 30 minutes). As the product dries it will slowly absorb the grease. You will see this happening as the degreaser will dry to a brown/yellow colour where it absorbs the grease. Everywhere else will dry to a white colour.
  2. Once the degreaser has dried, it turns to a powder. This powder should then be vacuumed off. Clean the leather with a suitable leather cleaner. If the leather still has any grease left on it, repeat the process again until it has gone.
  3. Once the grease has been removed the leather may need recolouring. To do this use our Leather Recolouring Balm. To stop grease from being absorbed again use our Leather Protection Conditioner once every 3 months for thorough grease and stain protection.
  4. The Degreaser should not be used or placed on these surfaces: wooden surfaces, hot or damaged surfaces, vinyl surfaces, satinated fittings, linoleum, textiles and carpets, rubber, etched/matt glass, vitroceramic surfaces, halogen hobs. Always test on an inconspicuous area before use to ensure compatibility with the surface.
Leather Filler

Leather Filler is a flexible filler used for fixing scuffs, scratches and also holes in leather. The product is mainly used on areas of high use, such as seating cushions and arms to fix damage where a long-lasting and durable repair is required.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Ensure the leather is prepared before application. To do this, ensure the leather is clean. If the area you are wishing to repair does not have a smooth finish, it is recommended to sand down the area using a fine-grit sandpaper (not included) including sanding/removing any excuse leather to ensure a smooth surface prior to applying the compound.
  2. Using a spatula or wooden stick (not included), apply the compound to the damaged area in thin layers making it as smooth as possible. Do not apply a second layer until the first layer is dry. Speed up drying time with a hairdryer. Re-apply until flush with the surface. A hole may require five layers to fill. Once happy with the coverage, ensure the compound is dry then if required sand down the compound so it is level with the leather.
  3. After the compound application, to ensure the compound is not able to be seen it is advised to finish with All In One Leather Colourant.
Leather & Fabric Glue

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Cut the sub patch to a size about half an inch larger than the rip or tear on all sides.
  2. Push the cut patch into the hole and use tweezers to ensure that the patch is flat beneath the leather and that it covers the entire tear.
  3. Apply the glue to the underside of the leather {between leather and patch} and press down firmly. Now, push both sides of the tear together, making the join look natural and bump free.
  4. Wipe away any excess glue with a cloth.
  5. To cure the glue, use a hairdryer (medium heat) or a heat gun, and warm area for 5 minutes. Whilst glue is curing, ensure the leather remains in place. 

CAUTION: Keep out of reach of children. Do not swallow. Avoid contact with eyes, in case of contact with eyes, wash with plenty of cold water and seek medical attention.

Leather Colour Restorer

Always test on an inconspicuous area to ensure suitability. The leather needs to be absorbent for this colour restorer to work. To test this, put a tiny drop of water onto the leather. If it soaks in, your leather is absorbent. When the water sits on top or rolls off the leather, then the leather is non-absorbent and this balm is not suitable. If you have a non-absorbent leather, try using Scratch Doctor’s All in One Leather Colourant.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Clean the surface of the leather using our Simply Leather Deep Cleanser. This removes all dirt from the leather’s surface and opens the pores, allowing the balm to be absorbed better.
  2. Using a clean cloth, rub the colour restorer in a circular motion into the leather. Leave for 5 minutes to allow it to be absorbed by the leather.
  3. Buff the surface with the cloth until no more colour restorer transfers onto the cloth.
  4. Allow 24 hours for the leather to become colourfast. Should you wish the colour to be darker, repeat the process until you reach a shade you’re happy with. The more coats you apply, the darker the colour will go.
Leather Repair Kit
Leather Scratch Repair Kit

Note: Hairdryer/heat gun can be used to speed up drying time. Ensure you shake colourant and tints well before use. Test colour in an inconspicuous area to ensure it is a match. Do not apply additional layers of any product until the previous layer is dry.

  1. Before repairing your leather, please ensure that you thoroughly clean the leather. A clean leather surface will ensure the best results.
  2. Use scissors (not included) to trim down the loose fibres. Then, using the scalpel, cut out any bits of the leather that are raised. Doing this is basically trimming the leather down to make it cleaner and neater for the following stages.
  3. Sand down the leather using P400 sandpaper to further remove any rough bits of leather. Then, sand the leather down with P1200p sandpaper to smooth it over. This process will smooth down the painted coating on the leather making the scratches less noticeable.
  4. Now, you need to prepare the area. To do this, apply some methylated spirit/white spirit/rubbing alcohol (not included) to a cloth or cotton bud and thoroughly clean the damaged area. Only prep the area you are re-colouring. This will ensure proper adhesion of colour when you come to apply it in later stages.
  5. Leave the leather for 10 minutes, allowing the alcohol clean to evaporate off. Then, using the leather filler & palette stick, spread the filler evenly over the scratches. Leave for 20 minutes to dry. Once dry, sand down with 1200p sandpaper.
  6. Test the leather colourant in an unseen area to ensure it matches your leather. If the colour does not match, please refer to the attached colour mixing guide to tweak the colourant to match your leather. Once you have a confirmed colour match, apply a coat of colour by sponge. Allow to dry. Do not apply a second coat of colour until the previous coat is dry. Apply 3-4 coats of colourant, or until you are happy with the coverage.
  7. Once the colour is dry & you are happy with the coverage you now need to apply the leather finish. See below for what finish you need to apply.

Gloss Finish – for very shiny leather.

Matt Finish – for very dull leather.

Satin – for standard leather finish. To achieve Satin Finish mix the Gloss & Matt 50/50.

Once you have decided what sheen you require, sponge the leather finish onto the leather. 3-4 coats of finish are required. Ensure each coat of finish is dry prior to applying the next coat.

Colour Mixing Guide

IMPORTANT: Ensure Leather Base colour and tints are well shaken. Use the measuring pipette to add tints.

INSTRUCTIONS

Pour some of the base colour into one of the mixing cups. Fill it about halfway (15ml). Then, dip a cotton wool bud into the colour and apply a tiny amount to an inconspicuous area. Dry with a hairdryer or let it dry naturally for 5 minutes. Once dry, if the colour does not match your leather follow the instructions to either lighten or darken the colour so that it is a perfect match.

HOW THIS WORKS

You will add (as instructed) a small amount of the tint(s) to the base colour and mix it together. You then re-apply a small amount of colour with a cotton wool bud to the leather and let it dry. If it matches, use this colour to make the repair; If the colour does not match, keep following the colour matching instructions and re-apply the new colour to the leather until it matches. Also, see the heading ‘Adjusting the Sheen’ to help match the sheen of the leather as well as the colour.

Follow the instructions for your leather colour as shown below. Once you have matched the colour, proceed to step three.

ADJUSTING THE SHEEN

Once you have a close colour match, if the colour is too shiny for the leather, slowly mix in the matt finish until it takes the shine away. Add a small amount (2ml), mix thoroughly, then apply some to the leather and dry. If it needs more, slowly mix in more matt finish until it matches perfectly. DO NOT MIX THE GLOSS FINISH IN WITH THE COLOUR, THIS WILL NOT INCREASE THE SHINE.

Leather Steering Wheel Repair Kit

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ALL THE WAY THROUGH BEFORE

IMPORTANT

  1. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ALL THE WAY THROUGH BEFORE STARTING
  2. Please make a not of the colour name on the bottle of colourant – this is crucial if you are to order more.
  3. Please carry out your repairs in a well ventilated room and wear safety gloves.

PREPARATION

This step involves removing the manufactured finish from the leather. The finish is a transparent layer sealing in the original colour.

1. Mask off any areas that do not require colouring, including any plastic areas etc. Only prep the areas that require colouring.

2. To remove this layer, rub the leather down with the Leather Prep, cotton wool and an abrasive pad. Do this by placing the cotton wool balls on the abrasive pad and soaking them in Prep. Fold the pad over the cotton wool balls and begin to scrub the surface of the leather.

3. When the colour is transferred onto the pad this indicates the surface is being removed, make sure this is apparent all over the leather. At this stage you should also notice the surface becoming abraded, this creates a key for the colourant to bond to. After this, wipe the surface of the leather down with a cloth dampened in Leather Prep, this will remove all residues from the leather. NOTE: Creases can sometimes cause problems if their coating has cracked within them. Pay extra careful attention when preparing the creases to make sure you remove all of the cracked coating from within them.

4. Where you rest your hands on the steering wheel, the leather may absorb your natural body oils; this is often indicated with a dark patch. It is very important that you use the Leather Degreaser to remove these oils to ensure proper adhesion of colour. Failing to do so may result in the colour remaining tacky when applied.

TO USE DEGREASER: Using a paint brush (not included) spread the degreaser onto the stained area and allow it to dry (drying takes up to 30 minutes). As the product dries it will slowly absorb the grease – you will see this happening as the Degreaser will dry to a brown/yellow colour where it absorbs the grease ( everywhere else will dry to a white colour). One the Degreaser has throughly dried out it turns to a powder which should then be brushed off. If the leather still has any grease left on it, repeat this process again until it has gone.

CAUTION: Do not use on suede, nubuck or bicast leather. Always test on an inconspicuous area first. R10 Highly Flammable, R36 Irritatin to eyes, R67 Vapours may cause drowsiness or dizziness, S2 Keep out of reach of children, S7 Keep container tightly closed, S24/25 Avoid contact with skin and eyes, S37 Wear suitable gloves.

5. If the leather feels rough, sand it down with 1200 grit sandpaper to remove the roughness. NOTE: It is at this stage that you should make any repairs to the leather. If the leather is cracked, please use the filler provided to repair any damage. Directions of use: Ensure the leather is prepared before use. Apply filler to damaged area in thin layers and dry throughly. A hole may require 5 layers to fill.

APPLYING THE COLOUR

6. Shake the bottle of colourant and tints for about 2-3 minutes to make sure it is well mixed. Pour a small amount onto a sponge and rub into the leather. The idea is to sponge on a thin coat of colour working it into any gaps, creases and hard to reach areas. Apply light pressure here to work the colourant into the grain. If you apply too much pressure you may get some foam of colour of the surface, this is not a problem, just wipe it away with the sponge (gently).

Lightly dab the colour onto the surface. The idea is to sponge on a thin coat of colour. Make sure to always lightly dab the colour without applying any pressure and do not wipe or brush the colour on.

DO NOT try to achieve a perfect finish with the first coat of colourant. Wait about 20minutes for the base coat to thoroughly dry. The colourant dries naturally or you can speed it up with a hair dryer. Apply another 2 coats of the colour the same way as before, allow each coat to dry thoroughly before applying the next.

NOTE: This kit includes tints. Please refer to the colour mixing guide included in this kit. Always remember to test a new colour in an inconspicuous area before carrying out the repair. Make sure you mask off all areas that won’t be getting coloured.

IMPORTANT: To avoid over applying the base, use it very sparingly – a little goes a long way. The base is not there to change the colour but to colour intricate and hard to reach areas. IT MAY LOOK SMEARY OR STREAKY BUT ADDITIONAL COATS WILL FIX THIS.

7. After you have a result you are happy with, wait 1 hour and then gently wipe the leather down with a cotton cloth. This is to remove any dust or dirt that may have settled onto the leather. You can also sand down the leather with 1200 sandpaper if it is rough and re-apply colour is necessary. The colour may dry slightly tacky, this will be fixed when you apply the leather finish.

APPLYING THE FINISH

8. This stage is to apply a sealant finish to the leather. The finish you use can be either Matt, Gloss or Satin (Please note if you want Satin mix 50% Matt with 50% Gloss). The first coat of finish is applied by sponge. Apply gently (again dabbing it) so as not to remove any of the colour. The first coat is applied very thinly to achieve a base coat similar to when applying the colour.

9. Apply second and third slightly thicker coats of finish in the same way (making sure previous coats are dry before applying the next). Once you have completed this stage, allow the finish to dry for about 1 hour. Wait 1 day before using the leather. To maintain the leather use our Leather Protection Conditioner. Do not apply any other product to the leather until at least 7 days have passed from this repair.
