Quote from: FABphones on August 03, 2023, 02:53:11 PMI had noticed that since I first started using it Milliput seems to have lost much of its black pigment.The repair has come out really well. Black auto polish will help a little to remove the greyness but it may take a few coats.Something I was toying with until recent events was the use of fabric dyes. Also black ink dyes.(Test on the inside areas first).
