Unless it's a very small area, I think you'll find that dye cannot be applied quickly enough to avoid a "patchy" appearance.

Had some success with acrylic paint colour match can be difficult for small areas

I wonder if you mean shoe dye rather than 'show' dye?

I guess it depends on the solvent used in the dye as to whether you will get a patchy appearance but a test has to be definitely worth a go.

Ordinary automotive acrylic paint works superbly. Available in spray cans, but a "proper" mix with a small compressor and a spray gun makes it indistinguishable from the real thing. I use it on many rebuilds of guitar amps.
