Thanks, .5 n .5 n .5 (that moniker is cool).
I noticed chinngiskhaan posted recently that he was thinking of embarking on a new trade - making shoes, referencing the Shoe Snob. Now that I am good on a new rotation, I am looking at my throwaways... and am thinking about embarking on my on sojourn - into the world of 'Patina'.
I am an artist (music production, writing, graphic arts, drawing) in spirit, and don't want to just chuck my old leather shoes. I'd like to start practicing patina art on them, but there isn't a whole bunch out there to consume in terms of techniques utilized by some of the masters (I know...intellectual property), and blogs that do get a little more in depth are typically in another language, which Google Translate mangles. Can any of you aficionados of shoe finery point an aspiring patina master in the direction of a good information resource, online or in the flesh? (...and I'm not going to Paris, unless it's Paris, IL.)
Any leads would be appreciated - you first handcrafted shoe is on me.
