1. Put on disposable gloves to avoid staining your skin with paint. Cover your worktable with a mat or other sacrificial surface to protect it from stains as well.
2. Clean the leather with a deglazer or other cleaner appropriate for veg tan or chrome tan leather. While the leather dries, choose a tool that suits the area you want to paint.
3. Before using, stir Acrylic Dye for Leather well. Never shake. Apply to the leather as desired, then allow it to dry thoroughly.
4. Add additional coats of paint as desired. Ensure that each coat dries fully before applying another.
5. After adding all desired paint coats, allow the piece to dry fully. The paint’s true color won’t be seen until it is completely dry.
6. Clean the finished piece gently with a soft, clean cloth. Leave as-is or apply a Fiebing’s finishing coat such as Resolene®, Bag-Kote or Leather Sheen.
