Premixed and ready to apply. Color Flex is a specially formulated, water based finish that dries quickly, looks and feels like the original surface; just like the new finish coatings that furniture, clothing and automotive manufacturers use on their leather. Dries into a flexible satin finish in about 15 minutes. Highly flexible and scratch resistant. Will not crack, peel, or flake. Color Flex will hide minor imperfections but it will not fill cracks. Only our repair compound can do that.

Recolor: Stains, scuffs, faded and worn areas..even change colors.

Suitable for Use On: Furniture, auto interiors, shoes, purses, briefcases, equestrian leather and much more!

Safe for Use On: Vinyl and all leather except for suede or Nubuck.

Step 1: Cleaning and Preparing the Surface

Cleaning your leather or vinyl is unusually dirty:
Supplies you'll need for cleaning - any liquid hand dish washing detergent, a couple of wash cloths or micro-fiber towels.

Wet both wash cloths in a bucket of warm water and wring them out, leaving them as damp as you would if you were going to wash your face with soap and water.

Put a couple of small drops of dish washing detergent on the damp cloth, then begin to wash the area with the washcloth as if bathing. Don't forget to clean any stitch lines. Rinse the cleaning cloth and repeat this step until the surface looks reasonably clean. After bathing the area, use the other wash cloth to rinse the area. Wipe over the area you've cleaned, and towel dry it. Make sure the surface is completely dry before you start your repair or recolor.

Preparation and Application:

Clean all areas that will be recolored with Presto Prep. If properly cleaned, when dry, the surface should not feel sticky or slick. This step insures that there is no residue left from previous conditioners or cleaners. Test it by applying a piece of tape to the surface. If it does not stick, then there's still something left behind on the surface. Clean again with Presto Prep.

Step 2:  Applying the Color Flex Finish

Fold a paper towel in half, then in half again. Now wet the paper towel with Presto Prep, more if you are repairing a large area, less if only a small area. If you're restoring a large piece like a chair or sofa, you will need to purchase more Presto Prep to insure that you have enough for your project. Presto Prep actually slightly softens the surface, allowing the Color Flex to adhere properly. Allow it to dry.

If you're recoloring just a section of a seat or chair etc. you should be able to proceed without masking off the surrounding area. Just put down a drop cloth to protect the floor surface. Mask any areas of the item that you don't want to get color on. You're now ready to apply the Color Flex.

It is very important to first shake the bottle for about 1 minute to insure that the color at the bottom of the bottle is mixed completely. Then carefully remove the cap from the bottle and pour a small amount into the plastic palette that came with your kit. Recap the bottle of Color Flex so that it won't dry out.

Dampen the sponge with water first and wring out really well so that the sponge is damp, not wet.

Dip the sponge into the Color Flex. Dab it on a the paint tray a couple of times so that the sponge is not too wet. (Watch our repair video at mark 3:04 to see how the tech does this.)

Start by wiping the area just as if you were painting with a brush or you can just rub it on as if you were cleaning the surface. Be sure to work it into the creases. If the piece you are working on has a lot of creases, be careful that the sides don't touch until the surface is dry. Use a blow dryer at the same time to dry these areas quickly. Don't worry if the color streaks, that's normal at this point. Apply only a thin coat. Don't try to achieve coverage with one application . Allow your first coat to completely dry (about 15-20 minutes) before you apply the next coat. You can use a blow dryer to accelerate the drying time. DO NOT reapply to partially dry areas. The color MUST be dry before you apply another coat. The surface should feel smooth to the touch and not tacky if it is completely dry. Be sure to rinse the sponge between applications so the color doesn't dry in it while you're waiting for your color to dry on your item.

Once the first coat is completely dry, dip the sponge in Color Flex again, but this time, start dabbing it on the surface moving your hand in a random motion. You may notice that the second coat is a different color when it's applied, that's normal, it will change color as it dries. By dabbing on the color you avoid streaks and it gives the slight appearance of a texture. You can repeat these steps as many as 5 times but we don't recommend any more applications than that.

If you've made a repair, the second coat should start to cover it, but if it doesn't, simply apply as many coats as necessary in the same manner, allowing drying time between coats. Be sure to blend in the surrounding area. The color will then blend with the rest of the item, making the repair less noticeable.

That's all there is to it.

*
If you've purchase the optional Clear Coat, you would apply after the final coat of Color Flex is dry it by dabbing it on in the random motion as described above.

Note: In the event that you are not satisfied with your results, our products can be safely removed with Presto Prep or rubbing alcohol.
