What is Clyde's 4-Step Process?
Our 4-Step Leather Recoloring Process is our easy and highly effective method for leather recoloring and repair. Our process is 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.
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.
Please note: if going from a darker color to a lighter color, more coats of the balm will need to be applied.
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.
Does it work on vinyl or vegan leather?
Our leather balm works on vinyl and vegan leather. The application process is slightly different for vinyl, since vinyl is non-absorbent. You can simply skip the absorbency testing step for vinyl.
How to check my leather's absorbency?
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.
What is our 4-Step Process?
Leather repair is highly nuanced, and requires careful direction. The Clyde's 4-step process is our simple yet highly effective method of leather repair and recoloring; backed by years of trial and error, customer reviews, and professional feedback. Please note, failing to follow directions can lead to undesired results.
