Some folks painstakingly remove and reinstall all the brass tacks from their leather furniture. Alternatively, work in small sections using this method:
- ‘Cut in’ each nail using an angled artist’s brush, but work the color into the nooks and crannies between each nail.
- Before the color dries, spray a single spritz of water on the nails and then dab with a rag. The water will flush excess color from the nooks and crannies of each nail.
- Rub ‘n Restore® doesn’t stick very well to metal. Remove any remaining color from the nails by with rubbing alcohol and q-tips or a rag.
- Repeat until the upholstery surrounding the nails is completed.
TIP: Always apply color to the areas with brass nails first, and then move on to nail-free sections.
