Eco-Flo Satin Shene is a water based, low V.O.C., durable, water repellent, acrylic non-glossy satin top finish for natural veg-tanned tooling leather. Satin Shene may be used to lightly 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 Satin 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, surface may be buffed with a clean soft cloth or piece of sheep wool if a brighter shene is desired. Clean applicators immediately after use with soap and water.
Resist or Blocking Technique: To use as a light or partial block for stains and antiques, apply at least 2 coats of Satin Shene to areas with a sponge (large areas) or artist brush (small areas). Allow to dry completely before staining or antiquing. Satin Shene will partially resist or block the effects of stain and antique allowing the natural leather color or dye color to show through while highlighting all cuts and impressions. The more coats of Satin Shene applied before staining and antiquing, the better the resist or block.
