Please note all our edge dyes and enamels are designed for vegetable tanned leather, basically if you leather can absorb the dye or enamel then it should work, but if your leather is sealed and does not absorb the dye or enamel then it may peel off over time. It may be possible to roughen the edge of your leather with an Emory board or sandpaper, exposing the grain or absorbent surface, then applying the edge dye. However, as we cannot guarantee this will method work in all cases, please take precautions to ensure your leatherwork will not be damaged and always test this method on a disposable first item to see if it will yield the results desired, before progressing onto your actual project.
