A lot of people want to get new shoes every now and then. This costs you a lot of money and the shoes usually don’t even look that different. Sometimes the only thing that makes the shoes different from each other is the color. When this is the case, leather paint may be the solution for you. Do you recognize yourself in this situation? Are you going to paint your shoes right after reading this article? Then keep on reading. In this article I am going to tell you how to do it.
While painting your shoes you have to take a few things into consideration. The first and most important thing you have to think about is if you want the shoes to be painted permanently or temporarily. After that you want to decide what color you would like your shoes to be and what kind of leather your shoes are. If you want to have them permanently tinted, you have to use a different kind of paint. Acrylic leather paint will come off much easier than a more penetrating paint. Then pick a color that you know you will love. The only advise i can give you is to pick a shade lighter than the original color of the shoes. If you don’t, there will be a chance that the original color peeks trough the paint. Deciding the kind of leather of your shoe is important when choosing the right paint. Your shoes can be smooth leather or suede. Pick the right paint for it and everything will be fine.
Make sure the shoes are completely clean before you start painting them. Remove all of the dust, dirt and grease to make sure the paint optimally penetrates. Work in layers and let them dry in between for the best results.
