    Default Too much darkening post treatment

    You guided me through the treatment of this cushion and it is complete except for top coat which I will skip as chair is being replaced. What can I do differently to have not so dark a result? I also want to know the best procedure to protect the new piece once it arrives.

    >>> What can I do differently to have not so dark a result?

    This darkening result is the combination of Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 > EffectWax-8.6 system.
    Less amount of the system will produce a lighter result.
    Another option is to stretch it to reduce the color saturation effect.
    Exposure to UV lights will also lighten the color saturation.


    >>> I also want to know the best procedure to protect the new piece once it arrives.

    New is only new at the tannery, the primary and secondary structural conditioner is VOC (volatile organic compound).
    Look at the clouds, just an analogy, the color saturation varies, depending on its percentage of water content too.

    Will I need to add the top coat or just stay with protect D on new piece or pieces that are not stained and only need minimal cleaning?

    The topcoat is optional, the Protector-D is recommended.
