Preparing the Damaged Area
- Carefully trim any excess threads, jagged bits, or burn marks from the burn mark on your leather love seat.
- Cut off any charred material if necessary.
Cleaning the Area
- Clean the area around the burn mark on your leather love seat with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab.
- Make sure to test it on a hidden area first. If alcohol is harsh for your material, you may use warm, soapy water or your usual leather or vinyl cleaner.
Adding Backing Fabric
- For burn marks larger than 1/4 inch, cut a piece of backing fabric with rounded edges, slightly larger than the damaged area.
- Insert it into the burn mark with the spatula provided in the kit.
Mixing the Repair Compound
- If your repair requires a custom color, refer to the Color Mixing Guide in the kit to match the color and prepare the mixture using the empty mixing jar provided.
Applying the Repair Compound
- Apply the repair compound to the damaged area on your leather love seat.
- Start by applying it under and along the edges and work from the outside toward the center.
- Use the spatula for larger applications and the brush for surface applications and detail touch-ups.
Drying and Additional Layers
- Allow several hours for the repair compound to dry until it is no longer sticky to the touch on your leather love seat.
- Once dry, apply additional layers until the repaired area is level with the rest of the area.
- To add texture to your repair finish, tear off a slightly larger piece of plastic wrap
- Press it against the semi dry final layer of the repair compound
- When you lift your hand off, the area will be slightly textured
- Repeat this process until you’ve achieved the desired texture on your leather love seat
- Once the repair compound is completely dry, use a cotton pad or cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to buff out the edges of the repaired area. This will ensure a smooth and seamless finish on your leather love seat.
- Wipe your love seat down with a damp cloth or leather cleaner every few weeks to remove dust and dirt.
- Avoid exposing it to direct heat sources or open flames to prevent future burn marks.
- Use coasters or placemats under hot dishes or drinks to prevent accidental burns.
- Use a leather conditioner to nourish the leather and restore its natural shine.
