    >>> Let us know what dye we should order

    This is random two-tone and may be work with two airbrushing simultaneously to create the desired effect.
    Recommend Leather Doctor 2Tone-37 to match.

    >>> and how much we will need.

    250ml bottle each color suffice for this ottoman


    >>> pictures, 11-16 B Worn corner / 11-16C Other worn corner

    Pictures show the exposed leather crust is very dry, even dry rotting of the fiber is highly possible and may loose adhesion as it exfoliates easily without removal and re-strengthening with Impregnator-26.
    It is possible that the fibers already lost its ionic positive (+ve) charges from alkaline solution during it s lifetime.
    Recommended that Acidifier-2.0 is used as rinse and pH balance at the same time for a more ionic negative (-ve) attraction from the Fatliquor-5.0.
    This pH ionic positive (+ve) charge from the Acidifier-2.0 helps to increase leather crust strength from adhesion failure.

    Roger, This client is going to have it re-upholstered so we are not going to proceed with it. She has only had it for 2 years and it is this worn. I let her know that we couldn't guarantee that it would last or be better than the original factory dye.

    Tips:

    1- Rub with Adhesor-73 instead of spraying.

    2- Add Crosslinker-25 to the topcoat.

    3- Supply her with Protector-B/B+ (minimum once a month application or every time after cleaning).

    These 3 details will outlast re-upholstery.

    By the way, do you know how heavily it is used? children play on it?
