2. Use Color Dye
- Stir the dye container with the application brush until the color is completely homogeneous.
- With the application brush semi-drained, apply a small amount of product to a sponge and paint the joint between sole and leather, sewn, scrapes, trim pieces, etc.
- Place one or two coats of dye on one end of the sponge. Rub gently in a circular way over the entire area, adding another coat of product if necessary. Repeat this process until the sponge is nearly dry. Without adding more dye, you can tap with the same sponge over the surface dyed to match the color, without attempting to cover transparencies. Once dry the 1st layer, apply a second one following the same process to match the color. Apply a third coat if necessary.
- Once finished dyeing, rinse the sponge and the brush with water to avoid them to dry out.
After have applied 2 or 3 layers of Color Dye you will check that the quantity used has been minimal, so the final result will be as a dye and not as paint. Leather will remain soft and flexible and the dye will never get cracked or peeled.
