Seiwa Leathercraft 500ml Dark Brown Roapas Batik Liquid Water Based Leather Dye, for Untreated Vegetable Tanned Leather
This Roapas Batik leather dye is an excellent way to add colorful designs to your leather to give them a beautiful, personalized touch.
Use this Roapas Batik leather dye from Seiwa to color and decorate your leathercraft projects. This leather dye is available in 24 different colors (each sold separately) and can be blended together to produce even more colorful designs. This dye can be used to color the surface and edges of untreated vegetable-tanned leather. When working on large projects, use this dark brown Roapas Batik in a 500ml bottle instead of the smaller 100ml size.
Before applying, use a mild bleach or oxalic acid (1 teaspoon per pint of water) to remove any wax or dirt from your leatherwork, then soak a piece of cloth in the dye and rub it over the leather in a circular motion, reapplying as necessary. You can also dye your leather by using a regular paintbrush or airbrushing in a well-ventilated area. For the edges, use a small sponge, cotton bud, or any other similar applicator.
To ensure the dye is properly applied and protected, use a leather lacquer and a primer binder when dyeing your leathercraft creations.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This dye is for undyed and untreated vegetable tanned leather used in leathercraft and may not be suitable for treated leather such as factory-produced handbags, table tops, car seats, leather couches, jackets, etc., as many (but not all) of these items have been pre-dyed and treated to resist dyeing and many have a plastic coating that will prevent the absorption of this dye. To test the suitability of this dye on pre-treated leather or chrome-tanned leather, thoroughly clean the leather you wish to dye with suitable cleansing fluid and place a drop of water on the treated area (mild rubbing may be required). If the leather absorbs the water then this dye may be suitable, however, please note that, unless your leather is untreated vegetable tanned leather we cannot guarantee the results and recommend you contact the manufacturer of your item for further details. We recommend you always test this dye first on a small patch of leather before committing to an entire project if you are unsure your leather is suitable.
