    Default Rottman Natuzzi Semi Aniline Faded and light scratches

    Roger we want to restore this sectional and keep it as original as possible. It is faded and worn but I was able to get a little color to come back where I test cleaned and hydrated it between the cushions. When you get the swatch let me know what dye we should order and how much? Original color is Eggplant not black.

    Let us know how you want us to proceed.

    3-21C I test cleaned and hydrated that small area just above the swatch in between the cushions and dried it. It appears that a lot of color came back.

    >>> 3-21B Shows contrast between new swatch and faded and worn bottom cushion

    Good to see the reverse suede side and the edge of the sample as well. Will be able to tell what can be expected to achieve the best result back to the original.

    Fatliquor-5.0 replenishing after Hydrator-3.3 will further intensify the color, test it and show result.

    Scratches are easily smooth with Adhesor-73.
    Fading of the aniline dyed leather crust is rejuvenated with Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 > Hydrator-3.3 system.
    Fading also means that the crust is dry rot to a degree and becomes easily separated or exfoliated, thus the essential
    Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 > Hydrator-3.3 > Adhesor-73 system ensures leather structural integrity.

    Further questions are welcome.

    Tips:

    Thickener-48
    http://www.leatherdoctor.com/thickener-48/
    will be required to stabilized the custom color mixed to prevent separation of color coating before it dries.

    MicroTop-54M (matte) to (dull)
    http://www.leatherdoctor.com/microtop-54/
    will match up to desired luster level.

    Finished off with Protector-B+
    http://www.leatherdoctor.com/protector-b-3/
    to reduce wear by friction rubs.

    Please share with us the finishing work, how it all turns out!

    Once we add Thickener how long is the dye good for?

    Thickener-48:
    The viscosity should be able to sustain until the next day, otherwise add to readjust the optimum application.

    Color test looks too deep in color but the right color.
    What can we add to lighten it?

    Add Aniline-76 (clear) to lighten to the desired intensity.
