How to paint eco-leather
The quality of eco-leather depends on the observance of production technology. And also from the right color.
Silicone spray allows not only to apply a uniform layer of paint, but also forms a protective film on the surface. It gives things increased resistance and at the same time has a coloring effect.
There are silicone coating materials that only provide protection for eco-leather. Such products are colorless, but at the same time they can update the appearance of the eco-leather product, give a little shine and increase wear resistance. Silicone is an ideal material that allows the surface to be glossy.
Spray paint for eco-leather
Coloring with a spray is convenient to use if the surface of the product is large, for example, eco-leather sofa. Spray allows you to color even hard-to-reach spots.
It is convenient to use the spray on a medium-sized product. Especially if you need to color quickly. It is enough to buy a can, shake and evenly spray at a certain distance. In some cases, the surface must first be degreased.
Usually aniline dye has a concentrated structure. When working with it often does not require re-application. Some paints require dilution with water. A small amount of the product and the sponge are enough, with which it is possible to soak the surface of the product from eco-leather.
Aniline dyes are harmless. When used correctly, the effectiveness of dyeing with this tool is very economical, since a small amount of paint will be required for a large eco-leather surface.
Alder bark gives a rich brown color with orange. A tincture of larch bark gives the product a color with an ocher hue, while maintaining the main tone brown.
How to dye ecoskin
In order to paint eco-leather, you need to carefully look at its structure, what type it belongs to. Ecoskin is a material that consists of natural components, but polyurethane is taken as the basis.
For the manufacture of eco-leather, natural components are used - skin and cellulose. The material is ideal for creating furniture, sofa upholstery, headboards. Eco-leather is also used in the manufacture of accessories and in the creation of clothes and shoes. The properties of this material include its breathable features, environmental friendliness. Such material does not emit toxic substances and products have a natural skin odor.
Skin type check
After the material of the product is examined carefully and any abrasions or paint defects are found, then you can start painting.
To make sure that the eco-leather item can be looked at a section of fabric. If synthetic material is traced at the base, then the product is not made of genuine leather.
Preparation of skin for staining
If you carry out staining at home, it makes sense to consult a professional. For example, it is good to apply concentrated, saturated paints with a sponge or a special napkin. This application method is used to restore color manually.
Thanks to the sponge, the paint penetrates better and is evenly distributed on the surface of the product. In addition, the sponge is very convenient when working with small surfaces.
For example, when working with aniline dye it is necessary to use a fixative. Thanks to this product, the paint does not peel off and remains for a long time without scuffs, withstands temperature extremes. After the fixer, in some cases, a special varnish is applied, which helps to further protect the skin, to give the product a silkiness.
