Leather Repair Filler Instructions

Our leather filler is premium quality, professional grade.

  1. Clean surface of area with our leather cleaner that requires repair – let dry. (you can use hair dryer to speed drying time )
  2. If there is a tear right through the leather cut a piece of leather repair cloth 50% bigger than the rip. Center the cloth under the rip and make sure it is laying flat. The palette knife will aid you in positioning the cloth.
  3. Apply leather filler to inside the whole perimeter of the rip and then glue tear down to the repair cloth – try to leave a concave void ( or valley ) in the torn area that will be later filled in. Let area dry 4-6 hours or overnight before applying the next coat.
  4. Now apply filler to ripped area and fill in the concave void ( or valley ) with the leather repair filler making the repair level with the surface. ( you can clean or wipe areas up with warm water if the filler has not dried. Let dry overnight.  ( drying time is approx. 4-6 hours per mm of leather repair filler ) – to speed drying time up you can use a hair dryer, * but is never a good idea to rush repairs.
