Like all other MAXCRAFT products, it has been created using a water-based technology that makes this leather dye completely sustainable and safe for human health. Thanks to our R&D lab, we were able to insert a combination of dyes and pigments inside the paint, which made it possible to create the two-tone effect with a single paint.
The Exotic Leather Special Dye in normally applied with the same procedure used for the classic Leather Dye application, using a soft cloth, a sponge or a dauber. Once applied it must dry for about 5-10 minutes (depending on the environmental conditions). During the drying phase the dyes penetrate inside the leather fibers, while the pigments will remain deposited on the surface of the leather.
Once the paint is completely dry, you can proceed to pigment removal. This is achieved by rubbing the leather surface using a soft leather cloth or a wool/cotton cloth to brush. The mechanical action of the rubbing increases the local temperature on the most prominent areas on the leather surface, where the pigment is then removed allowing the underlying color to appear.
Depending on the type of leather used, you can achieve different finishing effects with the two-tone feature. Once you got your desired finish, you can also use topcoat, such as Leather Gloss Finish or Leather Fixative, to complete the finishing of your exotic or embossed leather.
