Which products should be used to dye a leather shoe?
You can apply the leather shoe stain as many times as you like. The process is quite simple, it is especially durable over time. It is not necessary for you to colour the leather every month, for example. Our products are not leather polishes, we can consider them as self-fixing, even if we recommend the use of hairspray, they are generally much more penetrating than the products you can find in store.
To dye your leather, we recommend 3 products:
- the leather cleaner that will break the barrier usually made with a wax base, this step has the effect of making the leather lighter and more porous.
- The leather balm which is composed of our leather cream plus a leather colouring agent, you can order the product ready to use or create your own colours. In this type of exercise we always advise you to obtain your colour by superimposing the layers of colouring in order to obtain a beautiful patina, i.e. depth, shades and brilliance.
- Once your patina work is finished, all you have to do is fix (varnish) your leather so that it does not move or stain itself.
