Leather Painting Your Couch Fixing up a sofa with leather dye turns out well as long as you use a high quality dye. The process takes a little time to do yourself, but in the end you will really feel like you accomplished something. My wife and I recently used dye on a love seat and it turned out great. It is darker than it originally was, but that’s what we expected. And it looks much newer than it did before we applied the dye. Leaf stamping is a technique in which you use real leaves from out

a high quality dye. The process takes a little time to do yourself, but in the end you will really feel like you accomplished something. My wife and I recently used dye on a love seat and it turned out great. It is darker than it originally was, but that’s what we expected. And it looks much newer than it did before we applied the dye. Leaf stamping is a technique in which you use real leaves from outside your home to stamp leaf images onto your project (in this case your leather couch). To start, take the leaf and glue one side (the smoothest side) to a piece of construction paper. After it has dried, use leather dye to paint the side that is still exposed. Lastly, place the leaf, painted side down, onto your couch surface and press lightly. After you remove the leaf, you will have a beautiful leaf pattern on your couch. Rubber stamping works in a similar manner except that you are using predesigned stamps. You can find stamps in nearly any design, style or size including animals, shapes and spirals. Stencils are slightly different in that you would place the stencil on the couch and then paint within the stencil in order to create the pattern. Flowers, Greek keys and vines are great stencil options you can use to create nice looking designs on your couch. Using a darker or lighter color than your overall paint application really makes these designs stand out beautifully. Once you have applied your design over the first paint application, then you can apply your top-coat or sealant to lock in the design. The overall result is stunning when using this professional dye.
