Re: Jenny- leather darkening

Dear Jenny,
There may not be anything you can do to lighten the darkened leather;
however, you might try lightly sanding the darkened part with very fine
sandpaper, followed by an anhydrous consolidant or wax. This sometimes
works. Suggestion for the future: don't do that again! Seriously though....
you would be better off to consolidate the deteriorated leather spine with
Klucel G (dissolved in 100% ethanol or isopropyl) then reattaching it to
your repair with a mix of PVA, methylcell and/or starch paste.
