Buttercup Vinyl & Leather Dye


Yellow Buttercup dye recolors and conditions vinyl or leather. It adds UV protection and won’t flake, peel, or crack, or stain clothing.

Buttercup is a light golden yellow. 

It deposits permanent color and UV protection, blending the appearance of minor scuffs, stains, discoloration, and wear. Use it on vinyl as well as bycast or pigmented leathers. Buttercup permeates leather and vinyl, behaving more like a dye and less like a coating. Once dried, it will not rub off on clothing. Do not get wet until fully cured. Easy application with a sponge, brush, or spray gun. Each bottle comes with an extra-long stir stick and gloves. Sponge not included. 

Color changes on bonded leather or ultraleather are discouraged due to the flimsy nature of these materials.

  1. Better than expected. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2018

    We got leather chairs that were more beaten up that the pics showed. I googled something about "fixing" leather furniture. I was not hopeful. Within a week I had my package from rubnrestore. My chairs look like new. REALLY.

  2. Like magic! 5 Star Review

    I was a bit anxious to try this product because of the cost, but am exceptionally pleased with the result! Three thin coats turned stark white to a rich and lovely color that will hold it's own under stage lighting. There is a tiny bit of streaking, but that could easily be my application technique. By the time I finish the 5 pieces of furniture that need transforming my guess is there will be less visible flaws.

    Ladies. This stuff is AMAZING. My leather sofas are what I referred to as yellow when I purchased them used on craigslist years ago. At some point a friend referred to the color as buttercup. I love them. Sturdy construction, solid furniture. But with time and my dog and cat laying around on them while I'm at work the leather began to fade and crack. I found you and your product on the internet and decided to try it out. I only wish I had taken a photo of before and after. I purchased a bottle of buttercup and a bottle of white thinking I was going to have to adjust the color. Lo and behold. Buttercup is was!!! True to the color. It look like I bought new furniture. Your short video is precise and informative on how to use the product. So... Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!!!

    I am an artist and i have done a lot of restorations with a lot of products and polyurethane and paints. This product is off the charts amazing (I bought cherrywood, buttercup, and espresso colors). It doesn't have noxious odors, doesn't stain anything except what it's supposed to stain, is completely brush - stroke forgiving, doesn't ruin my clothes, a project can be finished in a day....I could go on for pages! I will send my photos too but I just couldn't wait to say something because I am so happy I tried this product. Thank you!!! I think that's what I am trying to say, just Thank You!!!

    I absolutely love this product. I just did an old couch. I wanted a fun color as it is going in my She Shed... so I chose Buttercup. It's amazing! I've already told 2 people.
