Hello, I purchased the Klugel G and have applied it to an antique book cover I bought that has red rot. I am ready to apply the SC6000, but I do not see instructions for application. Is the application similar to the video on applying Klugel G? Please direct me to instructions for the product. Thank you.

This is a good question. Basically you don't want to apply it all over everything. It is for the worst areas that are abraded. You can use a cotton swab or a bit of paper towel or a brush although it is pretty hard to get it OUT of the brush later. Sometimes I will apply it all over the spine and sometimes just over the rough corners and edges. It will make it more shiny so I frequently apply Hewits' leather dressing over unbroken areas to match the shininess. Test first to make sure whatever you apply to leather will not damage it. I hope this helps!
I do use the Klucel in some of the courses such as this one if you want to learn more. :https://saveyourbooks.com/course/4-101-caring-for-leather-books/
Here is the description from the shop. This is a half ounce trial size. Be sure to keep the container sealed thoroughly because SC6000 will dry out and harden if exposed to air. You can put a bit of waxed paper inside the container to be even more thorough. SC6000 is good for abraded areas of leather to seal and protect them. Use after applying the leather consolidant: Klucel-G. It is also good for sealing Japanese tissue repairs on corners and along board edges.
