This edge has proven to be flexible compared to other dyes and sealants since it rarely cracks or peels if used on a piece of leather slated to experience flexing. You will only need to apply 1 or 2 coats of this edge dye on your leather; therefore, this 80ml bottle is expected to last for long.
This leather edge dye has proven favourable for use on your leather items and leathercraft project in renewing some of your favourite factory leather goods.
When applying this leather edge on your vegetable-tanned leather: start by checking if your leather is clean and free from contamination. Shake the dye well then proceed to remove the outer and inner caps. Attach the applicator then saturate it in edge dye before running it over the edges of your leather until you get the desired amount, leave it to dry as you clean the applicator. If you are relying on factory treated leather instead of the preffered vegetable-tanned leather, use fine-grit sandpaper to remove the factory treatment before applying the leather edge.
Please note that our dyes are designed for use on vegetable-tanned leather only. This leather edge dye can also work on any leather that can absorb it. However, if your leather is sealed, it will not absorb the dye or enamel and might start peeling after a while. You can try to solve this by roughening up your leather edges using a sandpaper or Emory board, which will expose the absorbent or grain surface that you can apply the edge dye. This is not a guarantee that this method will work. Always take the necessary precautions to protect your leatherwork from damage by first using a disposable leather item to test this method. If you get the desired results, you can proceed to the actual project.
