Finishing over Oil Dye

Recommended Posts

Hi Members.

Apologies if this has already been asked...

Can I put a water based wax finish over an oil dye?

(Seiwa Wax Coat over Fiebings Pro Dye)

Many thanks

As long as the dye is thoroughly dry it will be fine.  Whenever you are not certain, just try on a scrap piece before using on your project!

And don't forget to make sure that you have buffed off all of the residual pigments from the Pro Dye, buff until you don't see any color removal on your buffing cloth. If your leather is dry and buffed out your top seal will work every time.
