Default Re: Dansette covering?

I've used paint and the leather coating/stain. Tried the paint with a brush but not happy as it became uneven due to quick drying so used a small gloss paint roller and got good results. Apply thin coats otherwise the grain pattern will get clogged.

The leather restorer, used also with a small roller, gave the best finish as you can go over several times to get an even coating. I gave that one 3 thin coats allowing several days between coats. It retains that 'soft' touch and pattern of new Rexine.
All the surface should be very clean before starting as it will contain grease from hands etc.
