Some time ago I got a club chair (Normandy model I think) that must be a few years old. (maybe 60's)
The leather, certainly due to lack of moisture, was very dry, brittle and flaky in places.
I tried to feed him but that wasn't enough.
So I dropped it off at a upholsterer who was supposed to renovate the leather and give me a new patina.
Serious mistake! a bad craftsman... (I can possibly give you these coordinates)
Basically he repainted the patina of the time with a kind of paint shiny plastic appearance without any shade.... (I even saw the low-pressure paint gun in his workshop) Goodbye my patina from the 1950s.
In short, not being able to support this new plastic aspect anymore, I decided to do a new patina and while looking for information I came across your site.
Looking closer I notice that the plastic layer does not hold and peels, unfortunately not from everywhere.
So I decided to remove it to get a raw leather and re-skate it.
- The plastic layer holds seriously in place in places. I don't dare use a chemical stripper. Do you have an adequate product?
- Removing the layer tears off the old patina and the leather is really raw and dry. Is there a need for a cleaning and degreasing product before patina? And what is needed to seriously hydrate it?
- the leather is a little cracked, flaky and even has a few small holes in places. Can I use a filler if I want a patina (and unpainted) look afterwards? I also think that the resin to glue back the scales and addicts is necessary.
- after preparation I would like to do a new patina. Please tell me the appropriate products.
I will send you some pictures but a priori in first message it is not possible.
Please enlighten me and tell me which products I need to order from you.
With all my thanks
