    Default Crocodile Hide - dehydrated and cracked, how to restore it?

    Hello,

    I have a very old crocodile hide, but it is completely dehydrated, cracked on the scales, is there a possibility to restore it, even a part of it.

    the hide hes been tanned, brown color.

    I had put on some leather balm on it and now it is full of residue.

    All the deteriorated leather balm need to be remove for better appearance and this removal process is performed with Degreaser-2.2 > Acidifier-2.0

    After the residue removal process the dryness is hydrated with Hydrator-3.3 to plumps the leather structure from shrinkage possibility closing up the cracks before topping up the fat and oil content with Fatliquor-5.0
