Buying new shoes every time you get sick of your old ones, can get very expensive. You don’t necessarily have to do this. There are other ways to spice up your shoes. In this article you will read about how you can give your old, boring leather shoes, a whole new life and a whole new look. This way, you don’t have to buy new shoes every time you get a little bit bored. Your bank account will thank you.
Firstly, you will have to establish if your shoes are made of suede or smooth leather. You will need a different kind of leather paint. After you decide the kind of leather, you can pick a color you would like your shoes to be. You can stick with the basic black, brown or gray, but there are so much more colors you can choose from. After you picket a color, you can place your order and your paint will get to you as soon as possible.
When you get the paint, you have to make sure you have enough time to do this. You don’t want to be in a rush. Before even thinking about painting, you have to make sure the shoes are as clean as possible. There can’t be any dust or grease. Dust will stick to the acrylic leather paint. Grease will not allow the paint to seep into the leather so it will be very patchy. If your shoes are completely clean, it is time to protect the surface you are working on. Also wear clothes that can get dirty. Leather paint is very hard to take out, once it is there.
When you start painting, make sure you work by applying thin layers that have some time to dry completely. This way the coverage will be optimal. Let them dry very well and enjoy your new shoes!
