If you don't round your edges, you'll find that they tend to buckle and wrinkle, and it just makes for a harder time to get . to insert the patch and get a nice smooth surface. So I rounded my edges and I'm grabbing my tweezers and stuffing it in here., And this is the same logic as slapping some duct tape on the surface, except that it looks a lot better, but it creates you're creating a new substrate. You're, creating a new homogeneous Surface for everything to flow with everything else, because this leather is a floating surface. Now feel thoroughly around the edges of it.. If you feel a bump somewhere, you need to come back in and work it and get it totally smooth, because any little bump or imperfection will translate in appearance later.
This stuff's kind of runny. You have to be careful. And quickly wipe off your excess and piece it back together as much as you can. If you have a really nasty tear that had you know different layers and edges, you may have to carefully piece them back together to get a really nice effect, and you may even have to practice that technique bit before you actually do the gluing process.
This is an easy repair, because it's a really clean straight cut.And you can use a board or a book and apply even firm pressure to get a nice smooth surface. And give the glue a little time to dry. And you should see when you're done that. You've got this new substrate and it's pretty much shored up and ready to go. I mean you can even just leave it at that and it's a huge improvement over the the gaping hole that you had previously.
Now. If you wanted to go a step farther and get a more aesthetic repair, you can use some super glue. Put your super glue in the crack and you do want to work minimally, perhaps more than I have. Use your toothpick or needle to work it into that Line and then grab your paper towel and sort of tap off the excess. The paper towel also creates a wonderful sort of texturing effect.
