Water based super shene for a glossy leather finish. It also repels water from soaking into leather.
AP Saddlery uses this shene for finishing saddles and some projects. We have tried many brands but this has worked best in our opinion. Being water based, it is not a permanent finish. Very easy to apply and has no smell!
Eco-Flo Super Shene is a water based, low V.O.C., durable, water repellent, flexible, acrylic based high gloss top finish for tanned leather. May be used to resist or block the effects of acrylic stains or antiques for highlighting areas.
Directions for use: Shake well before each use. Leather should be clean and dry. Apply a light even coat of Super Shene with a slightly damp sponge. Work in a circular motion, making sure finish gets into all cuts and impressions. Allow first coat to dry completely, and then apply a second light coat. After second coat has dried, buff to a high gloss with a clean soft cloth or piece of sheep wool. Clean applicators immediately after use with soap and water.
Resist or Blocking Technique: To use as a resist or block for stains and antiques, apply at least 2 coats of Super Shene to areas with a sponge (large areas) or artist brush (small areas). Allow to dry completely before staining or antiquing. Super Shene will resist or block effects of stain and antique allowing the natural leather color or dye color to show through while highlighting all cuts and impressions
