    Default Redskin shearling flight jacket

    I am a new member and find the forum very informative.
    Would it be possible to reproduce the redskin color of some B-3, B-6 and D-1 jackets.
    How would you proceed.
    Here are a few examples of redskin jackets.Name:  Alexander Leather type B-3 Redskin.jpg

    Prior to applying finishes, remember that these are the reverse suede side of shearling.

    In order to smooth the leather a coating has to be applied either of a discontinuous film or a continuous film. A discontinuous film coating allows transpiration, and a continuous film coating will pool water droplets on its surface. The discontinuous film coating are common on fashion shearling that is absorbent and any liquid will darken it until dry again while any oil based will leave a semi-permanent darkening mark until the oil dissipate.

    For working shearling like picture shown in most cases are the continuous film types and in this category there are the opaque finishes (Micro-54), translucent (Antique-27) and the transparent (Aniline-76) finishes. Picture shows that this is most like of the transparent type using Aniline-76 finishes that has a urethane gloss topcoat (AnilineTop-76G).

    A close match would be Aniline-76 (Antique-Brown).

    >>> How would you proceed.

    A typical system approach will depends where to take off as preparation cleaning and leather rejuvenating is performed prior to color refinishing.

    A – Preparation Cleaning
    Use Degreaser-2.2 > Rinse-3.0 and or Acidifier-2.0

    B – Leather Rejuvenating
    Use Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 > Hydrator-3.3 system

    C – Sealing, Priming with Adhesion Promotion
    Use Adhesor-73

    D – Aniline Transparent Dye Coating
    Use Aniline-76 matching color or color selection or custom matching.

    E – Topcoat
    Use AnilineTop-76G for gloss or 76S for satin

    F – Protection
    Use Protector-B+ for non-stick and rub-resistant to prolong the wear of the finishes with a buttery feel.

    Leather Doctor® Kit-A7.cl, aniline leather dye refinishing kit is designed for dyestuff and topcoat refinishing from the simple sunlight fading to the severely sweat damages from body oil and grease. Most severely penetrated, prolonged and neglected stains show a darkening effect with a sticky feel have its topcoat and dyestuff probably deteriorated by the sweat. When the stain feels sticky, it is a sign of leather denaturing and reverting to rawhide from breaking of bonds with the tanning agent. When sign of color is transfer to a white towel, it indicates that the dyestuff has also break bonds with the protein fiber. When leather is stiff or shows signs of whitish residue migrating, it shows that the fatliquor is breaking bonds as well with the protein fiber. The main component of the leather protein fiber is amphoteric while the other constituents are not; shifting of the pH mainly caused from sweat to alkalinity affects the pH imbalance. To revert from denaturing into rawhide prior to topcoat refinishing, contaminated alkaline soiling is removed with Degreaser-2.2, a waterbased (pH 2.2) multifunctional degreaser that emulsifies greasy contamination besides controlling dye bleeding and charging the protein fiber ionic positive for strengthening the attraction between the ionic negative tanning agent, dyestuff and fatliquor. Deflocculated and suspended soiling is towel extracted, thereafter rinse and pH balanced with Acidifier-2.0 to prevent the leather from reverting to rawhide. When leather feels sticky or slimy it is a sign of leather denaturing, a squeaky feel when wet is a sign of a healthy leather. Hydrator-3.3 relaxes stiff leathers and removes surface tension free from surface blotchiness prior to fat and oil replenishing. Fat and oil is replenished with Fatliquor-5.0 to rejuvenate the leather for the desired suppleness when dry. Custom redyeing commences prior to topcoat refinishing. Protector-B+ imparts a non-stick rub-resistant protection with a buttery-feel that shield against sticky soiling and reduce friction noises. Note that the mentioned product suffix number denotes its pH value in this holistic leather-safe aniline leathers dyestuff and topcoat refinishing system. Please email info@leatherdoctor.com for custom matching services or choice of color: Antique-Brown, Black, Yellow, Orange, Red, Red-Brown, Rubine, Blue or Dark-Brown. And choice of topcoat luster: Gloss or Satin
