The yellow base Teinture Francaise shoe dye by Saphir (50ml) is ideal for colouring or creating a patina on smooth leather, nubuck and suede shoes.
The Teinture Francaise yellow base shoe dye is a primary colour dye which, like all other primary colours, produce secondary shades when mixed with other colours. It is therefore useful for personalising the colour of your leather shoes, wallets or bags. The Teinture Francaise leather dye by Saphir is sold in a set that includes a pair of latex gloves, a cotton wick applicator and a colour mixing guide to help you create your own unique shoe colour.
The yellow base shoe dye can be used alone or mixed with other dye colours. It gives a yellow or yellow-derived shade to un-tinted leather. You can also apply this dye to small leather items that have been colour-stripped in preparation for the dyeing process. The lighter the leather colour, the better the results. You may also wish to use this yellow dye to touch up and restore the original look of items that have lost their colour after being damaged. Use the dye in a well-ventilated area and cover your clothing as well as any valuable objects likely to get stained. Test a bit of the dye on a hidden area to assess the results so that you don’t get disappointed at the end of the process. If you are satisfied with the results, apply the dye over the entire surface of the shoe and allow it to dry for at least one hour. If the colour is not intense enough after an hour, do not hesitate to add additional coats of the dye, but be mindful of the one-hour drying time required after each coat. Once you are satisfied with the final results, you will need to complete the dyeing process by nourishing and protecting the leather to restore its suppleness and shine. Choose a shoe cream colour that blends well with the Saphir yellow base colour and apply the shoe cream directly onto the leather. Shoe creams carry the double advantage of nourishing leather and intensifying its colour. Complete the process with a shoe polish to waterproof the leather and protect it from impact damage.
Store your Saphir yellow base shoe dye in a cool, dry place to ensure a long shelf life, and remember to tightly close the bottle cap.
