Changing the Colour of Crocodile/Reptile Leather

To change the colour of crocodile or reptile leather, proceed according to the following steps:

1- Leather preparation :

The leather has to be perfectly clean, greaseless and dry. If necessary eliminate dust with the Natural Horsehair Brush. If certain areas are covered with sebum (which is deposited by the skin), eliminate these traces with Stain Remover Hussard Spray Leather and Textiles. and afterwards use Cleaning Regenerating Soap, which is formulated without solvent for perfect in-depth cleaning without damaging the finish.

2- Colour Change

Use  Liquid Dye Teinture Française to add the new colour. Apply this very penetrating formula with a Brush or with the Foam Applicator Pad ( included with  the 50 ml bottles). Depending on the original leather and its initial colour, several coats might be necessary, up to three or four.

 3- Finish :
Afterwards, fix the dye with Varnish Rife (liquid or spray, see below). Apply with a cotton cloth, or use the spray, then let dry. 
To obtain a typical vanished appearance, finish by spraying withFinishing Varnish Tenax Spray.

For a medium size handbag you'll need the following products :
- 1 Cleaning Regenerating Soap 100ml
- 1 bottle of Liquid Dye Teinture Française 50 ml per coat
- 1 bottle of Varnish Rife 100 ml or 1 Varnish Rife Spray
- 1 Finishing Varnish Tenax Spray
