Your Perfect Match

Wondering how to get a perfect match? The easiest way to do this is to send us a sample so that we can custom mix a matching colour.

Alternatively, one of our 70+ colours may be spot-on or close to a perfect match. You can make minor tweaks using a Colour Adjustment Kit or the Master Colour Set to achieve a precise match.

Colour mixing

How to Mix Colour

  • Pour a small amount of your base colour into a plastic cup
  • Consider which adjustment colours to add then add a small amount, mix and test
  • To test, paint a 2cm dot in an inconspicuous place, dry it off with a hairdryer and assess the colour
  • Continue to make adjustments and repeating the test until you reach the required colour
  • Now that you know the ratios, mix the rest of your base colour

Sheen

Leather Paint has a soft gloss finish. It can be adjusted to matte or satin finish by adding Dulling Agent (No.30). Match the sheen of your paint to the sheen of your topcoat. For example, if you flatten your paint to satin finish, use a topcoat in satin finish also.

About Car Colours

Eventually, leather car seats begin to show wear and tear. Scuffs, scratches, stains and colour wear on the leather seats make the vehicle look old and neglected. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of automotive leather paint colours. It really is easy to erase years of surface damage with a couple of coats of our premium leather colourant.

31 auto colours matching
over 80% of the
car leathers used in Australia

Each colour has been precisely matched to samples of the most popular auto leather colours in Australia. Over the last 30 years, thousands of leather colours have been used in cars in the Australian market. Although there’s no accurate comprehensive database of colours, makes and models in existence, these 31 colours cover the most common shades.

We cannot tell you which colour suits which make or model.

Over time, used leather can change colour as it takes in stains, soiling and the effects of UV. Therefore most used car seats are no longer true to the OEM colour as they carry a patina of dye stains and wear.

Even when new, batches of the same leather colour from the same manufacturer may vary. That means that one ‘ivory’ car interior may differ fractionally to another identical make and model also upholstered in the same ‘ivory’ leather.

What’s the answer to these colour variations? Select a colour that is as close then fine-tune it using a Colour Adjustment Kit.

Note that colours may vary due to computer monitor differences. All colour representations are approximate and should be treated as a guide only.

Semi-Aniline Colours

Semi-aniline finishes are very much in vogue right now. Delivering classic and contemporary good looks, they also mark easily. Recolouring reinstates faded vibrancy, covers stains and provides a protective shield, helping it to go the distance.

If your sofa has a dyed finish, it’s likely to be an aniline, semi-aniline or waxed leather.

If your objectives include stain coverage, fading correction and the addition of protective coatings to your leather, Semi-Aniline Paints may be your ideal choice. Producing a pigmented finish with the luminous aesthetic qualities of aniline dyes, this paint balances beauty with practicality.

Master Colours

These 15 colours are bright and intense. Use them straight or mix them to create any colour you want. The possibilities are endless.
