Can someone please tell me (or reference me to a prior post that describes) the proper procedure to apply Saphir Reno?

 

I tried applying it yesterday to my ravello PTBs and they feel kind of tacky.  I first wiped down with a damp cloth, then applied Reno, let it sit 5 min, and brushed w/ horsehair.  Am I missing something?  They don't feel very smooth to the touch...

 

Thanks

you may have used too much product. I use my finger and spread the tiniest amount of reno. I coat the thinnest layer I can. I brush after 5 min and buff with an old t-shirt.

I do the same.

let dry

thin coat of reno or venetian, depending on the shoe

let dry for a couple minutes

quick brush with horsehair

quick buff with microfiber

What edge dressing you guys use? I swear the dark one for number 8 is not black but dark brown. Can anyone confirm?

Awesome, wish they were mine.

safe to say, I'd trade 3-4 pair of shell for a pair of those ravello wingtips

it seems black to me, only sometimes some of the heel still show through so it may not be completely covered, and not look totally black.
