Is my leather absorbent?

Your leather must be absorbent before applying our leather recoloring balm. Here's how to check:

Place a few droplets of water on the surface of the leather, preferably somewhere that has no damage. If the water is absorbed into the leather, and the color of the leather surface darkens, this means your leather is absorbent. This means the manufacturer's original leather finish has worn off or was never applied.

If the water sits on top of the surface of the leather, this means your leather is non-absorbent. There’s nothing to worry; this is normal. This means that the manufacturer's leather finish is still coating your leather. You just need to strip the manufacturer's finish using Clyde's Leather Prep and Deglaze.

How much do I need?

Once the balm has completely cured it is advised that you don't apply more. Thus, we recommend having the recommended amount at time of application. That being said, a little goes a very long way.

If you have extra after your restoration job, we'll pay you to send it back for a refund or we'll discount the original order. Don't hesitate to contact us for assistance!

4-Step Instructions

Clyde's 4-Step Leather Recoloring Process - a tried-and-tested solution for leather repair and restoration. Developed through years of research, customer reviews, and expert input, this easy-to-follow process ensures impressive results. Please follow the steps as directed to avoid undesirable outcomes.

STEP 1 CLEAN YOUR LEATHER: Begin by cleaning the leather surface with Clyde's Leather Cleaning Foam and a cloth. This step effectively removes embedded dirt and dust from the leather pores.

STEP 2 ABSORBENCY TEST: If the leather isn't absorbent, use Clyde's Leather Preparer and Deglazer to remove the original finish. This product strips the leather of non-absorbent oils, preparing it for the recoloring balm.

STEP 3 APPLY RECOLORING BALM: Apply Clyde's Leather Recoloring Balm sparingly, massaging it into the leather using the included sponge. Allow 24-36 hours for the balm to cure. Once fully cured, additional balm cannot be applied.

STEP 4 CONDITION LEATHER: Following the balm application, apply Clyde's Natural Leather Conditioner to seal the balm, prevent color transfer, and extend the life of your leather. For detailed instructions, click here.

Color Chart

Use our color swatches to help color match! If your leather is not an exact match, don't worry. You have a few options:

  1. You can mix colors to achieve a more complex color profile
  2. You can increase or decrease amount of balm applied to surface
  • Darker colors are achieved by applying more coats
  • Lighter colors are achieved by applying less coats

Color swatches are paired with HEX color codes for standardization.

Would balm stain my clothing or rub off? No, the balm doesn't color transfer when applied correctly and given the correct amount of time to cure. It's designed to chemically bond with the leather surface.

How long does it take to cure? Upon contact, our balm will begin to chemically bond with the surface of your leather. However, you must wait 24 hours after application to begin using your leather again. Once cured, you will need to seal the balm with our leather conditioning cream.

Can colors be mixed? Colors can be mixed to achieve any desired color. Please submit a contact form here, and we will help you pick the right colors.

Can I change the color of my leather? Any color balm can recolor any color leather. I.e. a black leather surface can be recolored to light brown or white. If going from a darker color to a lighter color, more coats of the balm will need to be applied.

What is Clyde's 4-Step Process? Our easy and highly effective method for leather recoloring and repair, backed by years of trial and error, thousands of customer reviews, and feedback from dozens of professional leather workers. The process consists of cleaning, absorbency testing, recoloring, and conditioning your leather.

Are your recoloring products flammable or corrosive? There are no solvents, flammable or corrosive materials present in any product except our leather prep and degalzer. For our deglazer, avoid conact with eyes and skin. Do not ingest any of our products.
