    Default – Lamb-mustang-vintage-moto-brown Leather Motorcycle Jacket

    Hi Roger,
    I just got off the phone with you.

    I bought this jacket:

    As you can see from my photographs that I am sending, the faux vintage “weathering” looks awful.

    I want to dye it uniformly black. I wouldn’t mind a glossy sheen like on the website. The original color is definitely not brown despite the description.
    It has never been worn.

    Please let me know what products to buy from you fix it.

    Thank you sir,

    Mike Spillers

    >>> I want to dye it uniformly black

    To dye to uniformly black would require an “opaque” black just look of paintwork using Micro-54 system.
    Since this jacket is described as faux vintage it would not be completely black but has a transparent or translucent effect.
    To refinishes as a translucent black would be using Antique-27 system.
    And a transparent black would be using Aniline-76 system.

    Leather Doctor is an example for Aniline-76 transparent system.
    Meanwhile you may want to know the fatliquor moisture content with a wood moisture meter. An optimum fatliquor moisture content is up to 14%. Otherwise you may want to top it up with Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 > Hydrator-3.3 system prior to refinishing it. Preparation cleaning is also recommended to remove any surface conditioner that may impede adhesion. Let me know your decision and we can go into details.

    Leather Doctorฎ, 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 [email protected] 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
