    Default Dye leather jacket to make it darker

    Hi Roger,

    I have a light brown leather jacket that I'd like to give a darker shade of brown. Could you recommend the proper product for this? Would I need to do anything to pre-treat the leather? Images are attached.

    >>>I have a light brown leather jacket

    This leather is aniline (transparent dyed) that has a wax finish.


    >>> that I'd like to give a darker shade of brown.

    To re-dye to a darker shade of brown would need Adhesor-73 > Aniline-76 > AnilineTop76 satin or gloss if gloss used Protector-B and if satin Protector-D (heavy wax) or lighter Protector-W.


    >>> Would I need to do anything to pre-treat the leather?

    1- The surface has to be degrease free of body oil, grease or sweat with Degreaser-2.2 > Acidifier-2.0 > Hydrator-3.3 system.
    2- The leather suppleness need to be taken care of as well with Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 > Hydrator-3.3 system.
    3- Re-dye begins
