    I have some dye on order that I'm pretty sure I'm going to need to lighten to get the desired colour I'm looking for.

    For Fiebing's Low VOC leather dye do you just use their regular old Dye Reducer, or is there a different one I'm suppose to use?

    I was going to call the company Monday and ask, but thought I'd try here first.

    Thanks for any help.

    Called Fiebing's today and they said to use either Denatured Alcohol, or Dye Reducer.

    Yes I was going to say denatured.
    If it is a lighter color you want you also may want to experiment ON SOME SCRAP LEATHER exactly like what you are going to use in the project. Experiment with adding some white or other color to get the color you want. Just thinning it might not give the look you are after.

    Isn't that paint and not dye?
