Seiwa Tokonole Leather Burnishing Gum is a water based, low V.O.C., natural gum based edge burnishing & slicking compound.  To be used on natural and/or colour-dyed vegetable tanned leather. Produces a shiny, smooth & professional looking edge.

Colour: Brown
Size: 120g

Also available in clear & black.

Made in Japan.

Directions for use:

  • Shake well before use.
  • For best results, first bevel the edge of leather with an edge beveler.
  • If leather is going to be stained, antiqued, or dyed, only apply Tokonole after dying, as it may block penetration of the dye or stain.
  • Apply a thin coat of Tokonole to the leather edge with a wool dauber, cloth or slightly damp sponge.
  • Wipe off any excess that might end up on the surface of the leather as this might darken the leather.
  • Work in small sections to prevent the Tokonole from drying completely before burnishing.
  • After applying, allow to penetrate the leather for a few seconds, but start burnishing before the Tokonole has dried completely.
  • Rub edge briskly with a burnisher/edge slickerbone folder, or piece of canvas.
  • As the Tokonole dries and heats up due to friction caused by rubbing, the treated edge will become darker and glossier.
  • Repeat until the desired burnish is achieved, optionally sanding the edge between applications.

Note:

  • Close the lid tightly after use and store in a cool place out of reach of children and pets.
  • This product is not water resistant. To protect edges form moisture, apply a water-resistant finishing agent over this product.
