Mac-Lace Leathercraft Antique Finish is a water soluble product that is used to change the colour of leather, but also it is used to highlight patterns on leather from tooling and stamping. It is best applied to raw or natural leathers with patterns, applying a light coat first – then just before it dries wipe off the excess antique finish leaving product in the lower areas. This process is then repeated as many times as required to get the depth of colour and highlighting required. There is no need to apply a sealer. Lacquer or seal and shine can be applied to get a better gloss.
