About Leather Repair Paint
A combination of the flexibility, coverage, and quality of our standard Leather Colourant with the self-sealing properties of our Leather Finish. You can use the Leather Repair Paint to repair any type of colour damage to sofas, cars, clothing, handbags and all other leather items.
It is the perfect solution for repairing scuffs, scratches and colour loss. If you need to restore a large item of leather (i.e. a full sofa or car interior) then we would recommend using our Leather Colourant Kit. However, the Leather Repair Paint can still be used for these larger jobs if you wish.
The Leather Repair Paint is supplied in a standard range of common leather colours, but it can also be supplied in specific car colours or matched to any colour you require.
Standard colours come with a satin finish, but custom colour matches can be made with any finish required. A thin coat of Leather Finish can also be used to adjust the sheen.

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 prep other than clean the leather. However, if the repair is in a high contact area (i.e. 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.
We have a kit called a Leather Colourant Kit that comes with all the prep, colour and finish you need to restore all items of leather.
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.
The paint will dry within a few minutes (or leave about 30 mins if drying naturally). Before applying any other products such as protectors, you should wait one week.

Leather Repair Paint FAQ
Q. Will this affect the quality of the repair compared to applying colour and 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.
Standard 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 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.
