Most recognized penetrating, alcohol-based leather dye in the world
Dying leather is an art, not a science. Variations in materials, conditions and artist touch will have a direct effect on the results. No two leathers will always accept dye with uniform results. This color chart should be used as a guide and the dye should be tested on swatches of scrap before dyeing your final article.
Preparing the Leather for Dying: In the tanning process, various protective surface finishes are given to leather hides. This finish must be removed before dying. Fiebing’s DEGLAZER is recommended for stripping off tanning finishes and making the leather receptive to dyes.
Applying the Dye: After the leather has been cleaned and prepared as recommended above, apply the dye evenly using a piece of wool skin, cloth, or a dauber. An alternative method of covering large areas evenly is to spray with a spray-gun or air brush. A second coat of dye may be applied if required. After dying, remove excess surface dye by rubbing briskly with a soft cloth.
