Angelus Leather Dye is a permanent liquid dye used for changing the color of all smooth leather articles. This dye is guaranteed to penetrate leather and form a lasting color which will not peel, crack, or wash off. Excellent for use in manufacturing or re-coloring saddles, tack, shoes, belts, purses, wood, etc.
Note: Color 507 has additional ingredients that allow the dye to penetrate hard and/or difficult leathers.
Each bottle of dye comes with one Wool Dauber
Before dyeing, remove any dirt with Angelus Easy Cleaner or existing finish by using Angelus Preparer and Deglazer. To clean, dilute, or mix leather dye colors, use Angelus Dye Reducer Solvent. Apply two coats of dye evenly with wool daubers. After dyeing, use one of the Angelus Acrylic finishes. Allow 4-8 hours to dry before wearing any dyed article of leather. For smooth leather only.
Note: The Angelus Dyes can have a bright green metallic look to the leather when too much is applied. This is called the "Bronzing effect" and is caused by an excess amount of pigment. The solution to this is to saturate a rag or cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and wipe down the leather. This should restore the leather to the look of the dye color.
