Directions & Tips

Colouring - 4 Simple Steps

  1. Clean and prep the leather with Spot & Prep (No.4)
  2. Optimise adhesion between the leather and the new coatings with Prime (No.5)
  3. Colour with Colour (No.6)
  4. Seal to protect the new colour coats from wear and tear with Topcoat (No.7) 

How to Mix Your Colour

  • Start with the colour that is closest to your needs. This is your base colour
  • Assess which tint or tints will be needed to achieve your desired colour
  • For small batches, add one or more drops of tint to the base colour. For larger batches, you can pour a few mls at a time.
  • Shake for 1 second to mix
  • In an inconspicuous place, apply a thumbnail-sized dot of colour
  • Allow to dry or dry with a hairdryer at 30cm distance
  • Assess and adjust your colour using the same process until you have achieved a match or found your ideal colour
  • Clean off your test spots with Spot & Prep (No.4) within an hour


  • Use our Custom Colour Mixing Service if you need help with your colour
  • Dulling Agent may be added to Colour to reduce the level of sheen
  • When repairing or touch-up small areas, lightly sweep the sponge to feather the edges and blend the area
  • Multiple coats may be needed to achieve full coverage
  • Thin coats produce the finest results
  • May be mixed with Leather Filler to create a tinted filling compound
  • May be force dried with a hair dryer or heat gun at 30cm distance
  • Priming and Topcoating your Colour  will help to deliver better and longer lasting results
