I am desperate and I hope to find good advice from specialists. A few weeks ago, we recovered my companion's childhood sofa (a leather sofa that was very damaged because it is 35 years old, my companion used to jump on it when he was little, the cat used to claw on it, etc);
The middle cushion was very damaged, with several small tears that, by sitting on it, became gigantic.
>> I have blocked them (in all, 4).
>> I took the opportunity to try to repaint the whole cushion, but I made a mistake, because the cushion was very dry and fragmented, like the skin of a lizard. So once repainted, it flaked even more (I had a layer of resin underneath).
>> I read that first I had to remove all my damage and the varnish layer with a specific cleaner (or even with an ultra fine sanding film), and that I had to put some nourishing oil. I did it. I did it.
>> The problem is that I can't remove all the resin. There are traces of cracks absolutely everywhere on this sofa, some of which are impregnated with resin.
I'm very afraid of being yelled at by my partner. I'd like to renovate this couch once and for all. I have read several methods on this forum, but no one is in my situation. Do you know what I can do?
I tend to think it's not ruined: it makes me a completely smoothing product to put back on, which covers everything (including cracks), but I would like to stop the charges. the leather is very thin. Do I have to give it to a pro? Do I have to change the leather?
I can't load you with photography (I'm on my computer). I try in a comment after validating my message...
