Hi Folks, I got a problem with fiebings prof. oil dye "Royal blue". I used it before, applied it normaly with a dampened sponge and covered it with Resolene, which I applied with a sponge, too. The problem ist, that it turned into a purple at some points, I think the resolene may take of some colour and this purple stuff just stays. At that point I recolored the piece and bought some aerosol-sprayer to apply the resolene. In a way it worked, but the spraydust wasn´t fine enough, so i got some points where the resolene got too thick (thinned it 1:1, tried to apply just a light coat so it would be covered) and there were some drop-like points where it (the resolene?) turned into some kind of red. In addition even this "light coat" was too thick, so the leather looks more like plastic. So I turned back to the non-spraying method. Thinned it too, let the colour sit for about 24 hours, buffed the leather like hell before applying and did the job with a sponge and with a cloth (tried both things out), and ...tadaa.... purple again. I don´t know what to do. Right now I neither have the space nor the money to buy an airbrush-set and I think there should be a method to apply resolene without ruining the whole dye-job. Can anybody help me with that? Greetings Sona
