Angelus brand dye is a permanent liquid dye been use with 1000s professional cobblers and leather craftsmen for over 100 years.
These dyes are guaranteed to penetrate leather, and to form a lasting color which will not peel or crack. They are also excellent for use in the manufacturing or re-coloring of shoes, saddles, tack, belts, purses, wood, and much more.
We strongly recommend preparing it with leather preparer deglazer. (The preparer-deglazer should never be used on vinyl.)
Leather Dye can be thinned with either the color Neutral, or with the reducer solvent.
After dying, use one of the many finishes available, to protect the finish and to add the desired amount of shine. For finishing we offer acrylic finisher in matte, satin, gloss, and high gloss, as well as a polishing wax.
The final colors that you can expect to obtain will vary significantly. They will be affected, in part, upon the amount and concentration used.

You can fill these pens with your color of choice, and then use them to apply small amounts with precision. They are as easy to use as – 1. Fill the reservoir with dye, allowing the insert to saturate. – 2. Insert the end cap. – 3.. Put the pen to work. The pens are easily filled by transferring with a ‘swizzle’ straw, i.e., insert straw into the bottle, cover the end of the straw with a finger tip, move the straw to the pen reservoir, and then release the dye into the pen. An eye dropper can also be used to transfer dye from bottle to pen. You’ll want a separate liner pen for each color used that will require detail work.
