“Great product to repair leather furniture! This is a great system for fixing cracks and holes in leather furniture. Our furniture is maroon/burgundy, so I looked on the color mixing chart and tried red-brown-black, which was a decent match but a little dark. I used up all the material I had mixed filling and repairing all the gaps and cracks in our leather couches. After the repairs were sufficiently dried/cured, my wife mixed red and blue and matched our leather color perfectly! She used an artist paintbrush and her fingers to brush and rub the material over my patches, to “re-color” the repairs I had done. The colors “are” the repair material, which is some kind of acrylic or vinyl or polymer plaster. You can brush or rub the material into surface cracks to fill them and prevent them from going all the way through the leather. For open cracks and holes, cut some of the backing material and get it on the underside of the leather, then proceed to fill and repair from the finished side. Surprisingly, the material fills/bridges pretty wide gaps even without the backing material. But if possible, the best way to fix big gaps is to spread some of the color material on a piece of backing material and stick it on the underside of the leather before you start the finished-side repair. The kit includes some colors you won’t need, so you can use those to bond the backing material to the underside where color doesn’t matter because you never see it. The material dries strong and flexible, just like leather. You can do your own professional quality repair job with this material. Like any repair on anything, if you did the repair yourself and you know where it is and you get close up and look for it, you will be able to see it. But if you take the time to get a good color match, then for practical purposes the repair will be “invisible”.”
