How to Repair Leather Burns and Holes in 7 Easy Steps
Step 1: TRIM
Trim any jagged bits or burn marks with scissors or a knife.
Step 2: CLEAN
Thoroughly clean the area with a cotton swab or a cotton pad and rubbing alcohol.
Step 3: INSERT BACKING
Cut out a piece of backing fabric with rounded edges and larger than the hole. Insert it into the hole with the help of the spatula.
Step 4: MIX
Use the Color Mixing Guide to find the main and secondary colors to match your leather. Mix the colors of repair compound in the mixing jar.
Step 5: APPLY
After mixing, apply under and along the edges to ensure that the backing fabric is well glued. Then, fill the compound directly into the hole.
STEP 6: BUFF
Allow the compound to dry for several hours. Then, use a cotton pad or a cotton swab with 90% rubbing alcohol to buff the edges.
Step 7: ADD TEXTURE
To add texture to your repair finish, press a plastic wrap against the semi-dry second layer of soft filler. Repeat this process as needed.
