To prepare a solution from the powder, a small quantity should be made into a paste with cold water, then boiling water added until the required dilution is obtained. If the solution is too concentrated, a "Bronze" effect will result.
Once you have made up your dye solution, pour the required amount into a shallow dish. Using cotton wool dipped in the solution, apply the dye in broad, parallel and even strokes on to the leather, each time slightly overlapping the previous run. If necessary, after the first application is dry, the leather can be rotated 90 degrees and a second less wet coat can be applied to make the finish look more uniform.
As a rough approximation, 1/4 of 60ml of a the dye powder will make 500ml (1 pint) of liquid dye.
Once completely dry, an application of Dye-Fix
will fasten the dye.
