I decided to try my hand at antiquing a pair of burgundy Allen Edmonds chukkas (like the Malvern boot, but with a leather sole) but I'm having trouble removing the majority of the coloring with deglazer--does anyone have any tips? I have been using sponges to apply the deglazer and to rub some of it off but it isn't very effective. I'd like to turn the shoes dark brown with a burnished toe but I fear it will still have somewhat of a burgundy tint if I just dye/polish over their color now. Thanks for the help!
