There are a variety of leather fillers on the market that may be used to fill up large fractures. However, you must first ensure that the leather is clean. Remove any dirt particles with a leather cleaner. Rub a piece of cotton pad that is dipped in the cleaner solution in gently circular motions on the leather. With a clean towel, wipe it away.
Smooth the surface of the cracked areas with super-fine sandpaper. Continue until the finish feels smooth to the touch. Eliminate any dust with a paper towel. Avoid using coarse sandpaper, as it will cause more harm than benefit. With the help of a palette knife fill the cracks with the filler. A soft brush can be used to make sure that the filler has covered the cracks fully. Take off any access filler gently from the surface using a knife. Allow the leather to air dry for a night. Avoid using a hairdryer or exposing the leather to direct sunlight, since this can cause the leather to shrink. Check to see if another layer of filler is needed once it has dried completely.
Use of Leather Dye
A leather filler may not produce the desired outcome, resulting in a colour variance in some areas. However, you can keep going with the leather dye because it works nicely with leather filler for deeper fissures. After you've finished applying the filler, make sure it's completely dry before sanding the surface to achieve an even texture and a smooth feel. To avoid further harm, be soft and utilize circular motions.
Choose a leather dye that complements the colour of your leather item. Always start with a thin application of colour and build up layers as required. Using a sponge or a brush, apply the dye to the fissures. Permit it to air dry for a couple of hours. Check to see if you can get a nice leather sealer. If not, just spray your leather accessory with waterproofing spray to protect it from damage resulting from water and heat.
In the end, no matter how many remedies you find, prevention will always come first. It's best to avoid the usage of your leather accessory in the rain or excessive heat. Dryness and cracking can be avoided with regular cleaning, conditioning, and moisturizing.
