The grey Teinture Française leather dye by Saphir in 500 ml colours smooth leathers, as well as suede. It can also be used to create a patina.
The grey dye by Saphir is conditioned in large 500 ml bottles for an economical size. This packaging turns out to be a good choice especially if you are planning to colour different leather items such as shoes, belts, jackets, and other leather goods. Used for both colouring and patinas, this dye helps you achieve some unique colour contrasts for your shoes when associated with other shades. Usually appreciated by leather care professionals, this dye is very easy to use. It comes in a kit that contains a pair of latex gloves to protect your hands, a little foam tipped applicator, and a colour chart to help you achieve different mixes in order to better colour customise your shoes.
Use this grey leather dye preferably on cleansed or stripped leather to improve its efficiency. In most cases, light-coloured shoes tend to give better patinas. You can also use this dye to revive the colour of all types of old leathers. We highly recommend you test the dye on a hidden part of your leather item before each dyeing. If you are satisfied with the results, apply then an even first coat of the dye and let it dry for at least an hour to assess its true colour. For a darker grey shade, do not hesitate to add additional coats of the dye, but keep in mind the one-hour required drying time for each coat. You can then complete the process with a shoe cream to nourish the leather as cleaning and dyeing can cause excessive drying. Shoe creams are either neutral or coloured to allow you to play on the undertones or enhance a patina. We also recommend ending your ritual with a shoe polish to waterproof the leather and give it a nice and unique shine.
Make sure to always close the leather dye bottle after each use. Store it in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated place to maximise its shelf life.
