Any holes, rips, or tears through the material must first be subpatched.
Sometimes the edges marry back together nicely, but usually some voids remain. These gaps are deeper and may require more filler than worn, scaly, or chafed areas that have not yet torn.
For voids larger than 2" wide, consider glueing a top-patch of similar-grained leather or vinyl before applying filler. This will be more flexible, feel more natural, and use less filler.
