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


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. Leather Repair Kits contain Dulling Agent.

Choose from 2 types of finish:

  1. Leather paints – for a pigmented finish
  2. Semi-aniline leather paints (a blend of paint and aniline dye) – for a semi-aniline finish

Pigmented Colours

Within the range, you’ll find popular colours are found on sofas throughout the Australian market. If your leather is one solid colour, it’s likely to be pigmented.

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. Look for ‘Aniline’ colours within the range.

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. Generally not suitable for use in cars.


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