To recolor a leather saddle without changing its colour, the AVEL products allow you to use the same finishing procedures as in the tanning industry, for all types of smooth and non varnished leather.

1 -The first step consists in perfectly cleaning the leather and removing all traces of grease:
. To clean your leather, use Ointment Soap Etalon Noir. It takes off all coats of wax, gives back its natural appearance and opens the leather pores for better penetration of the colour pigments.
. Pay particular attention to sebum deposits due to the transpiration of rider and horse, which have to be perfectly eliminated with Stain Remover Hussard Leather and Textile Spray.

2 - Once the leather is perfectly clean, greaseless and completely dry, go to the repigmenting phase which will give back to your leather an original finish and eliminate all traces of discoloration, wear, cracks etc :

Proceed according to the following 2 steps:
 . Spread the Pigmenting Cream in small quantities by massageing the leather with the help of the Applicator Foam Pad (included) or with a Cotton Cloth. Let dry for approx. 5 hours. Check the degree of penetration and the choice of colour on a hidden part of the saddle. If the cream leaves any marks, try to apply it with a humid Sponge, or a paint roller, or by dabbing for a better hold of the first layer.
 . Afterwards, it is essential to fix the Pigmenting Cream in-depth with Pigmentig Cream Fixing Liquid. Each coat has to to be fixed. Afterwards, the colour will hold perfectly and won't discharge on your clothes.

Remarks :
- If necessary, you can apply two coats of Pigmenting Cream. Be sure to fix the first coat before applying the second.

- Valmour also proposes the Development of a Made-to-Order Pigmenting Cream ( see advice card "Development of a Made-to-Order Pigmenting Cream"). This service will cost 48 €. Please provide us with a sample of your leather measuring at least 2 cm².
- This solution will give you the best result in terms of quality, but also represents a cost by no means insignificant. Instead, you can also use Juvacuir. It cannot be made-to-order and doesn't need a Fixing Spray, and the result will be less resistant in time.
- To refresh the colour without using a dye, clean your saddle with Ointment Soap Etalon Noir and afterwards use Cream Renovator Avel in the matching shade.
