Really nice job. I always worry about how to keep natural welts clean when polishing. Now I will be confident if I need to dye them.Big fan of Tricker's here. I just did a bit of welt darkening/colouring on two recent pairs that originally came with the natural welt and I thought I'd share a few pictures for anyone that might be curious.
These are the Coffee and Cafe Burnished. (Often available at a bit of a bargain price from various dealers from what I can tell).
Quite a different look to the original, which I also quite like, but I thought it turned out rather well.
Before picture of the Coffee (didn't get a before picture of the Cafe):
For anyone wondering I used Saphir Teinture Francaise (01) Black (applied with a small paint brush rather than the included dauber) for the main colouring, and then finished it with a bit of Saphir Pommadier Cream and some Pate de Luxe wax. There was also some masking tape involved
