I'v been experimenting with doing a mirror finish on the toes of my Jeffery West shoes. I achieved the finish i wanted but being a complete idiot i installed toe taps and the hammer blows caused the polish to crack. I then tried to remove the polish with alcohol and then saddle soap and it isn't working. I'v ordered Saphir renomat and i'm gonna strip the toes and start again. I'v been using shoe cream followed by saphir pate de lux wax (But once i strip i'm going to use saphir dubbin, renovateur, then cream, then wax).
Does anyone know of a way to Gently remove the wax? Bearing in mind that with a mirror finish the coat of wax is very thick. I would also like to start waxing my other shoes, but i'm concerned about drying out the leather.
