How to Seal Leather After Laser Engraving
You should always seal your leather engravings after you clean any laser debris off of it. Sealing the leather helps preserve it. As the coating locks out dust, it protects and beautifies the leather's finish.
To seal your laser cut leather engraving, apply a light coat of beeswax, saddle soap, or leather conditioner oil. Allow it to air dry completely. Apply a second coat if needed. Then, coat the smooth grain leather with a protective leather sealer, covering all the way to the edges. Allow it to air dry completely.
