FAQs

Are there any surfaces not suited for Leather Studio™ paint?
Leather Studio™ is not recommended for suede, patent leather, satin, cracked or waterproofed shoes and accessories.
Do not use Leather Studio™ paints on other items such as furniture, automobile seats, etc. Also if a vinyl surface feels sticky or spongy, Leather Studio™ paint may not adhere.
Can I mix other mediums with Leather Studio™ paint?
Never mix mediums or alcohol with Leather Studio™ paint as it will break down the paint and make it not as flexible.
Can I thin Leather Studio™ paints with water?
Leather Studio paints can be thinned with water, however, too much water will compromise the paint’s adhesion properties.
Can I use a stencil when creating with Leather Studio™ paints?
Yes, Leather Studio™ paints work beautifully with stencils and even better with flexible, adhesive stencils. However, because the paint will dry as a film on the stencil, all stencils should be cleaned immediately while Leather Studio paints are wet with warm soapy water.
If Leather Studio™ paints have dried to the stencil, rubbing alcohol may assist in cleaning the stencil.
Can Leather Studio™ paint colors mixed together?
Yes, Leather Studio paints can be mixed with one another to create a new color or values of the same color.
Do I need to add a sealer for additional protection?
To further protect your painted surface, you may polish the surface with a neutral shoe polish or any type of household furniture polish. Apply following manufacturer’s instructions.
How long does it take projects painted with Leather Studio™ paints to dry?
Allow all Leather Studio painted project surfaces to dry at least 24 hours before using.
How shall I clean my cured Leather Studio™ paint projects?
Completed and cured Leather Studio projects can be washed lightly wiping over the painted surface with a moistened cloth using mild soap and water.
How should I apply Leather Studio™ paint to my project surface?
Squeeze a small amount of Leather Studio™ paint onto a foam plate or disposable palette. Using a soft bristled paintbrush or foam brush, apply paint using long, smooth strokes applied in the same direction; starting along the edges. Work quickly and do not try to get perfect coverage with the first coat.
Overworking the strokes as the paint is drying will cause the strokes to drag pulling color off of the surface. Let paint dry for at least one hour or until it feels dry to the touch before applying additional coat(s).
How should I apply Leather Studio™ paints?
When painting vinyl and leather surfaces with Leather Studio paints, a thin application of paint is best.
