(it’s all in the gel)
Husband didn't care for leather recliner and both cracking and rubbing off of color happened over time. Decided to try this repair kit and am happy with results. As other reviewers have mentioned customer support is super! Applying my mixture using a cotton ball slightly dampened with alcohol worked best for me. This is especially true when covering an area that has no cracks but has faded or rubbed off color.
I used this leather repair kit to repair a set of leather stools that were in horrible shape. The product worked great! However, there was not enough product to complete my repair. I think this is an excellent product for small leather repairs. I would love it if the company sold larger tubes of individual colors but as of this writing they do not. I have also have leather chairs to repair. I’m including the before and after photo of one of my stools.
I should have taken a before photo so I could show the difference but I didn’t. We had one big tear in our “pleather” sofa as well as many scratches and small holes. Most were made by our cat walking on the couch and her nails just made little pin holes. The tear was about the size of a quarter and was caused by a bug spray coming in contact with the couch and delaminating it. I have to say, this product does a better job fixing large holes/tears than small. Our couch is chocolate so I used the black. I also did’t need the patch material. Applied one coat, gave about an hour to dry then reapplied. You can’t see the big hole unless you look for it. so much better than before.
This product deserves a review. I was skeptical at first but I was desperate and needed to repair my sectional leather couch. I had a six inch rip from my dogs and it was a huge eye sore. I mixed the paint per the color chart and adjusted a bit to darken tone. The color chart is very easy to follow and accurate. I applied about three coats while allowing drying time in between and am amazed at the results. I’ve had family and friends over and they can’t even tell I’ve repaired it! This product saved me from buying a new sectional. I’ve attached a pic of what the repair looks like, you can still tell but only if your looking for it, the adhesion is very good and it has prevented the rip from spreading. Lovin’ the results!
It looks better than before. I tried and tried to match the color but knew what I was missing was red for my faux leather jacket that was peeling just under the collar. Finally, I decided to try adding red acrylic paint and it didn’t take long before I had almost exactly the color I needed. I will add a couple more layers and hope it doesn’t look too much like a repair. I couldn’t wear it the way it was so I figured I couldn’t ruin it any worse.
I purchased a used genuine Italian leather sofa that came with a ton of cat scratches. It was so beautiful that I couldn't resist, but I definitely wanted to try and repair the scratches and wear. I spent a lot of time researching and comparing leather repair kits and finally decided on this one. I had never used any type of leather repair kit previously, so I was really nervous about how it would turn out but I'm so so glad I went with this kit! The results were honestly way better than I was expecting and the price is definitely reasonable. The instructions were super simple and easy and the sofa looks 100x better. Just make sure to clean the application spatula thoroughly when applying layers so the spatula doesn't get any buildup on it...that'll make it easier to spread the additional layers evenly. The picture shows the section before I used the kit (with a close up) and after.
This product is great. I use it on leather couches, leather hand bags, leather coats. It brings them back to life and keeps the leather soft and supple.
I was convinced I had to toss my favorite leather cushions because they were flaking and cracking. But I didn't a little research and I decided to try this out and it worked wonders! Yay!!! It just takes a steady hand and patience.
Very easy to use! thanks
Exactly what I needed!!
This worked great! I have a cat that scratches all over my leather sofa. I couldn’t really fix the scratches with this because there are so many, however, you can’t see them anymore! One thing that helped was using an old rag and rubbing the product on in large circular motions. It covered the scratches and blended better than the brush or spatula.
Thanks for it!
It did worked on a genuine leather sofa. On the hunter boots to be honest it doesn't do much.
Just what I need for my upcycling project. thank you!!
It's a pretty simple concept to use. Comes with all the proper tools and lots of colors to mix to make your own seat color. It seemed to be hard to find my seat color but I got it as close as possible. The instructions say it will take a few coats and that's very true I think I got to 3 coats before it was good enough for me.
This product works fine to fix small areas. Will update in a few weeks to how well it holds up.
