Changing color is best suited to absorbent leather.
The following are not good candidates and will require touch-up:
Here's what wear looks like:
Touch-up is easy and minimized by:
Whites and off-whites get poorer coverage. If you are changing from dark or red to pale, you may need 2x-3x the volume of color. Consider a coat of Ash or Stone grey as a primer to minimize this.
Our products are water-based acrylic finishes (paints) that look and feel natural. Consider a heavier urethane or aerosol for color changing boat or auto upholstery.
You can order handmade swatches of leather or vinyl refinished with our colors to see how they compare.
Or send us a sample and pay a fee for an exact match (recommended for auto, RV, boat interiors, primary or secondary colors):

I love it!!
I found you because you were the only place I could find eggplant-colored dye. The instructions were clear, and made the process easy.
Best of all, they came out fantastic. They look as good as the day I bought them. Thanks so much! I'll recommend you to anyone whom I see needs to refresh their leather furniture.
Then i used two coats of eggplant. After buffing with a soft cotton and overnight drying, i applied a 50/50 mix of glaze and eggplant.
I could never afford a chair like this brand new, but now i have one, and my back, my budget, and my decor say THANK YOU!
