Ive used Resolene happily for years.. I sand medium then fine and do two light coats. More isn't better.. light coats are plenty. Saphir Reno or VSC are my favorites.. same scenario... more isn't better. Both will yield fine results if you don't overdo it.Hey guys I have some questions. I just got my second pair of Nicks which I love. I knew I would as long as I liked the leather which I ended up getting the 1964 Brown. My question is what is best for conditioning it when the time comes. The preservative or the oil and how much does it darken? I've only ever used Redwing heritage leather cream. Also is Fiebing's Resolene best for bringing natural edges back the that darkened new look?
