How to use Leather Repair Paint
Step 1 - Cleaning
In all circumstances, we recommended fully cleaning the entire item of leather that you want to repair. Not only is this good practice, but if the leather is dirty, it can cause a freshly repaired area to stand out. Clean the leather using our Leather Cleaner.
Step 2 - Preparation
If you're just repairing a small scuff or scratch, you don't need to do any additional preparation other than clean the leather. However, if the repair is in a high contact area (e.g. car seat bolster, steering wheel, seat cushion) then you should wipe it with Alcohol Cleaner.
If you're repairing an area of colour loss smaller than an A5 piece of paper, then you should clean the area with Alcohol Cleaner before applying any colour.
In all other instances, or for the best preparation procedure, you should clean the leather with Leather Prep, followed by Alcohol Cleaner.
Step 3 - Repairs
If the leather is damaged, it is at this stage where you would make any repairs using our Leather Repair Products.
Step 4 - Applying Leather Repair Paint
The last step is actually quite easy! The colour can be applied by brush, sponge or airbrush. Simply apply the colour onto the leather in a thin coat and dry it with a hairdryer.
Additional coats can be applied to build up the colour.
Always make sure you shake the bottle well before using and check the colour on a hidden area first.
The paint will dry within a few minutes (or leave about 30 minutes if drying naturally). It will continue to cure over the next seven days, therefore you should wait one week before applying any other products such as cleaners or protectors.

Leather Repair Paint FAQ
Q. Will this affect the quality of the repair compared to applying Leather Colourant and Leather Finish?
A. No, it will not. We have developed this range with professional users in mind to make quick and easy colour touch ups in homes.
The Leather Repair Paint is just as flexible, it has same colour coverage and quality of our Leather Colourant range, with the added benefit of sealing itself whilst it dries.
Q. Do I still need to apply Leather Finish?
A. No, this is the benefit of using Leather Repair Paint. The colour seals itself whilst it dries. The only time you would need to apply Leather Finish would be to match the shine of the leather.
All of our pre-mixed colours come in a satin finish. However, if you are using our colour match service, we will also match the shine for you.
Q. What leathers can I use this on?
A. Our Leather Repair Paint can be used on all leather types and colours of leather. It is also safe to use on vinyl and faux leather, including bonded leather.
Q. Can I use this on an aniline (absorbent) leather?
A. Yes, in fact this is great for aniline leather as you are limiting the amount of surface coatings being applied which will help to keep the leather looking more natural and softer.
Q. Will this rub off onto clothes?
A. No, once the Leather Repair Paint has dried it is completely colourfast. There is no need for added topcoats as it seals itself.
