One day i will actually test this out on leather.Sounds odd, but have done this in a pinch...get red and black crayons, scrape off a little of each and mix together as best you can on a piece of wax paper or similar, then fill the cut. Modify as necessary. If you don’t like the look, it’s easily removable. If you like it, top off with some matching paste wax and gently buff.
