Customer Review - Coconix Professional Leather and Vinyl Repair Kit: TAKE YOUR TIME AND DO IT RIGHT!
DIY repair projects are very challenging but Coconix will make DIY leather repair projects easy for you. Not only that, you’ll even get the best results possible!
“As others have said, if you want professional results then hire a professional. If you can’t afford one but want to save your couch, then this kit is perfect!
I had an 11 inch tear on my leather couch. I had to use the sub patch in the kit (coarse-woven fabric) and a lot of the compound to seal it up. Matching the texture of the original surface meant stippling with the included brush and a piece of sea sponge from my own art supplies.
The hardest part was matching the color. The color chart didn’t show a dark green, so after a few experiments and false starts I was able to get something remarkably close. The kit includes a small container with a lid, so you don’t have to remix every time you need to apply a coat of compound.
My patch job isn’t perfect, but it’s not that noticeable either. I had enough compound left to fix more than a few cracks and worn spots on my old couch. Great repair kit!”
