So that it doesn't drip when squeezed. Keep a spray bottle of water handy to periodically moisten the sponge. Thoroughly stir your color until evenly dispersed. This can take up to two full minutes. Pour a small amount of Color directly onto your sponge or the working surface. Spread it evenly across the area, massaging into cracks and wrinkles. Notice. How little dye we pour onto our sponge. Maybe a tablespoon at a time. The first layer is always the most work because it primes the surface for the following coats of dye.
Remember that many thin layers are better than a few thick layers. If any coat of color is applied too heavily, you may notice small cracks form as the dye dries and cures. Thoroughly dry, each coat with a hair dryer before applying another layer, but avoid getting the surface too hot. The color will darken as it dries. It will take several coats to do a dramatic color change like this one. Second and third layers will get better coverage, but may still look streaky or uneven. Any additional coats should remedy this and leave you with a professional result. You be the judge. Just let the entire process be fast and easy. Don't spend too much time or use too much color on any one area.
It took five coats of dye to color change. This sofa, which is demonstrated on this cushion. Surfaces with lots of wrinkles and folds like this one will use more volume of Color. We did the tops and sides of the love seat with just under 8 oz. but we did not dye the undersides of the cushions or the back of the loveseat, which are not visible.. We usually would recommend 16 oz. to perform a dramatic color change such as this.. However, using a color similar to your surface will achieve the same great results with far less volume of color. For more luster and to deepen the color. You can apply our clear glosses. It also provides an extra layer of protection from the elements
