Let it dry. If you arn't looking for a glossy surface that will do it. If you want gloss, keep building coats of diluted Resolene about 1/2 hour between coats. Once the Resolene looks like you want it to, let it sit 24 hours or so.

How do you clean leather before dying?

1) for standard deglazing I use 70% isopropyl rubbing alcohol - it's 70% alcohol 30% water. I use a cheap spray bottle and spritz the leather good and inspect to see if there are any spots that don't look "clean". If things look good I re-spritz then apply the dye while damp.
