Cool

On a small area maybe a brush.
I've fully done 3 steering wheels and applying with a small sponge looks the best way IMHO. Fine & neat result with 2 layers at least, then an appropriate satin varnish.

Don't forget protective gloves or your fingers could have an interesting shade!

Bit late , but poundland make up sponges work very well. Dabbing the dye on when doing my steering wheel, worked very well.

An air brush can also work well, good for fading in areas but be very careful of over spray.
