You're looking at an 80 gram jar of alcohol-based Carving Dye (No. 3 on the color chart), which is ideal for highlighting crevasses, stampings, and carving. Alcohol dyes offer the advantage of faster drying periods and deeper penetration.
To use this dye, simply use a toothbrush or gloved hands to rub this thick paste into carved or tooled leather, then wipe away the excess carving dye with a dry cloth. A moist cloth can be used to remove stubborn stains if necessary. Repeat as desired. Allow to dry after achieving the desired finish before buffing with a lint-free cloth and applying your favorite lacquer.
Please keep in mind that this gel dries fast, so wipe it off as soon as possible. This is a great technique to set your leather carving apart while also saving time that would otherwise be spent dyeing the leather.
