I 'd like to show you some of my works on shoes:

I worked on lot of brands: CJ, Lobb, Emling, Markowski, Grenson, Paraboot, Loding, Bexley, Altan, Trickers...

My inspirators are Corthay, Altan, Berluti, Stefanobi.

The box can be black, dark brown, chestnut or pale vegetal. I use professionnal means like avel, saphir cream and polish.
I'll tell you more if you're interested.

Do you work with shoes on a regular base?

good leather really soaks up the saphir colored creams I have a BB peal C&J wholecut that I got tan and i've been polishing it to a reddish color, and it looks great (in my opinion). these shoes would make for a great home tanning job: C&J pennys: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP..._color=Natural I wish I had purchased them when they were on super 70% off clearance for !150ish.

I started about a year ago with a standard box, kind of pale cognac.

My first color was a green bronze. Then I continued by customizing my own shoes. I showed my works on a forum and then I had clients since about 8 months.

I'll work for a new brand in about a month but I'll trie to continue my work on other brands.

I work on every box, I have to remove all creams and polish first with acetone or terebenthine.
Then I use special shoe paint "teinture aux drapeaux" AVEL. I combined red blue yellow and black. It depends on what I want to do.

I finish with coloured creams such as blue navy, burgundy, red, khaki, green... I polish the shoes with appropriate polish: burgundy, blue, black, yellow, uncolored...

Thanks for welcome

+1. I'm pretty unadventurous in shoes colour-wise, but I can certainly appreciate these.
