The Repair compound is amazing to work with. I was able to spread it on seamlessly, and it went on so easy, dried quickly, and has a very strong texture. I was able to repair 2 large cuts / tears in my leather couch and it filled it in perfectly (after applying a sub-material to bind the leather too). I'm just waiting on the color of paint to be correct so I can finish the project. The first two colors I tried were not the correct colors, but I believe this next one I am waiting on will be it. It's very hard to match the color chart provided with the actual color of the couch. The colors seem to come lighter than what I expected via using the color chart via an iPhone comparison. It's my first project and I am learning. It's very nice that you swap out colors and your return process is very good. The cost of postage is pretty high, but I understand you don't have much control over that.
I was really impressed with the results I got treating my old leather recliner. It was showing honest wear but a few places were badly cracked and alligatored. Instructions were great and I had no issues except for the initial color match–had to spring for another bottle of Color Flex. That match was excellent and the chair looks nearly new. Let's hope it's durable. If not, I'll strip it and do it again. As an aside, if you have a recent MacBook Pro, set the display to P3-500 and the large color swatches can be used to compare directly with no other calibration.
Good afternoon, Just wanted to tell you how well the repair and recoloring of our whole couch went. It was a lot of work, but so far we are happy with how it turned out. Hoping it wears well and gives us a few more years of use. I have attached a few before and after pictures I thought you might be interested in having. I used a whole container of the Flex and should probably order a small container for touch ups I may see in the future. These are of the before photos and repair.
I got to tell you my repair was or couch was a mess, I had used someone elses methods and it was HORRIBLE, so I was at a loss what to do , and then I remembered your video showing your repair cream going on so smooth etc and I thought maybe, just maybe if your product was half as good as this video showed it to be I could save my $4500.00 couch. Well sir your repair cream was easy to use (could'nt get easier) and the dye was permanent, I didn't need to worry about sitting on the couch with my light colored pants.....the bottom line is you can't see the repair, the dye I worked it in so it's a perfect blend and I have never done anything like this before, anyway Thank You
Used repair compound on a faux leather couch that was peeling. Spread on smoothly and dried with blow dryer on cool setting. Followed video instruction. Product is excellent! already had the dark brown leather color, so used that. Very flexible and soft material, Seems very durable.
Love your products! DIY beginner and my furniture came out wonderful. Service great. Decent delivery. Only wish you had Canadian warehouse. The only problem I encountered was how much product to buy. Reordering and keeping item clean till arrival was frustrating. But overall love the finished look and feel. Can't tell there was ever damage. Side note, one chair was grandpa's (my husband) and he just passed away. It became very important to family that I repair rather than replace. Your product really did that. The chair is like new.
I didn't actually use the repair kit, but I'd like to leave a review anyway because I really appreciated all of the information that Magic Mender provided about the realities of bonded and bi-cast leather. I read their information page, and thought that the chairs that I'd picked up on craigslist were good candidates for the kit, but by the time the kid arrived I could see that the bi-cast leather was just too far gone to be repaired. Luckily they have a good return policy and I was able to turn it around within a day for a refund. I'll end up reupholstering the chairs completely with a vinyl fabric, but if they ever get damaged or if any other leather or vinyl upholstery I have needs mending I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this product again.
I have used Magic Mender's products twice now, both times for leather car seat repair. The first time, couple of years ago, I purchased the Complete Repair Kit as I had some leather cracks to be repaired. The repair went really well and the Color Flex Finish matched the color really well. I really appreciated supplied with the product clear repair procedures and prompt response from Magic Mender's representative who called me when I adressed questions. For another car seat repair this year I used only the Color Flex Finish that I have selected based on the listed car internal color and matched it with the Auto color charts table on Magic Mender's website. It was a Light Grey color, and as with all light colors, I knew the matching could be a problem. This time the supplied Color Flex Light Grey finish had a bit blue shade to otherwise light grey color. After some consideration I have decided to apply the color using the technique shared by Magic Mender's representative. Although the color matching was not perfect, in general I was satisfied with repair. I want specifically praise Magic Mender's responsiveness and their attitude to customer questions.
