Leather Dye & Recoloring Kit
Leather Dye Kit restores and renews the color and finish of leather articles:
Leather Jackets and Clothing
Luggage and Handbags
Horse Tack and Saddles
... and much more!
All Leather will eventually wear and fade. Light surface cracks will appear which causes the leather to look old and deteriorated, but the leather itself is still in good condition. All that is needed to restore the finish is a new color coat. This Leather Recoloring and Painting kit allows you to recolor worn and faded leather easily. The paint for leather provided is a water based material that is designed to be highly compatible with leather. The finish provided will be a permanent, long lasting finish that will give you many years of service. Available in custom colors too! Just provide us the color information of your item and we will custom match the color for you. One kit provides enough material to recolor the seating areas of two automotive Bucket seats, or the seating area of one medium sized sofa. Larger projects will require additional Color Coat Material as well as additional Leather Prep. These items may be ordered individually when required. If deep cracks exist in your leather, it will be necessary to fill these cracks with one of our Leather Repair Kits first. Many scratches caused by animal claws or other items being scraped over the surface of the leather may also be refinished using this kit, so long as the scratches are not deep into the leather. Choose your color from our Color Charts, or have us custom mix your color for you.
To obtain custom matched colors, we need the following information:
A sample of the leather is the best method to obtain the proper color. This sample may usually be obtained from the underside of the frame. there is almost always excess material left by the manufacturer that has been wrapped around the frame of the seating area that a small (1"X 1") patch may be removed. We will gladly match the color of your kit to this sample.
If this method is not possible, we may be able to match the color in our formula books if we are provided with the following information: Auto: Make, Model and year of Car, Name of Color, Interior Color Code.
Furniture: Manufacturer Name, Style, Color Name and/or Code. In most cases, in order to obtain a perfect color match, it is most beneficial to send us a small sample swatch of the material that you wish to recolor. Color codes give us the formula that is specified by the manufacturer, but many times these colors vary a great deal because of dye lot differences, style of leather, and many other factors. In some cases, a color formula is not available, and the only way that we have to match the color is by means of a sample swatch. A small piece ( 1" x 1") may usually be removed from the underside of the furniture without causing any problems.
Suggestion: It may be easier to locate a "paint chip" from a local paint store. If we are provided with a sample of the color that you desire we will be able to match from just such a sample. Make certain that the sample that you provide to us is as close as possible to the color that you desire, since we will be matching to that color only
Please fill out and print the Custom Color Match Form and send it, along with your sample to the address on the form.
