    Default Oliver Sweeny Shearling Jacket

    I called you yesterday with some questions on how to darken my brand new Oliver Sweeny shearling jacket. We discussed using the fatliquor and hidrator for this. I tested the jacket and it does absorb water. The pic attached is the final look I want. I will send you some real pics of the coat later. This picture is how they advertise the jacket online, but when received the color looks much lighter. I like that this picture looks like a dark chocolate color with some shine. That is the look I'm going for.

    Oliver Sweeny Shearling coat as advertised: (dark chocolate and some shine) I like this!!!

    >>> We discussed using the fatliquor and hidrator for this. I tested the jacket and it does absorb water.

    Plan A) is to used
    Hydrator-3.3 http://www.leatherdoctor.com/hydrator-3-3/
    > Fatliquor-5.0 http://www.leatherdoctor.com/fatliquor-5-0/
    system to increase the color saturation. The leather will be stronger and softer as well.


    >>> I like that this picture looks like a dark chocolate color with some shine

    Plan B) is to impart coloring to the finishes and since it has a ‘savage’ appearance transparent coating dyestuff like Aniline-76 dark-brown will bring the panel close to the seam dark chocolate and sealing the dyestuff with desired level of shine is determine by AnilineTop-76 satin or gloss. The refinishing process sequence is as follows:

    1) Adhesor-73 http://www.leatherdoctor.com/adhesor-73/
    This process will seal uneven absorption rate and promote a good adhesion for the coating dyestuff Aniline-76.

    2) Aniline-76 http://www.leatherdoctor.com/aniline-76/
    This aniline transparent coating dyestuff will reduce the color difference with a beauty of depth and still retain the savage look of the jacket.

    3) AnilineTop-76 http://www.leatherdoctor.com/anilinetop-76/
    This matching topcoat seals the dyestuff and imparts the desired gloss or satin luster.

    4) Protector-B http://www.leatherdoctor.com/protector-b/ or Protector-B+ http://www.leatherdoctor.com/protector-b-1/
    This product imparts a soft buttery-feel against rub and sticky soiling, either leather scented or scentless.

    Here are the samples of darkening the new jacket - see the collar new darkening color from the lower section from three distances.

    What do you think?

    >>> I know sometimes the pictures look darker than real, since the shearling has a natural shine. Can you post a close up like I did for you?

    Here is another view from the back - Shine will be determine when a topcoat AnilineTop-76 is applied.

    Great Finish, darker color really makes a difference.
