    Is it possible to remove burnished areas on a lighter colored shoe? Think very light tan.

    There is no second colored wax or antiquing on the areas, per se, just some areas of darker burnishing that I'm not crazy about and want to restore to the natural shade of the shoe.

    Thanks!

    That is just a terribly funny comment.

    Dear God! I'm in class right now (my students are writing), and I'm laughing at an inappropriate level!

    Are we talking about EG's heat burnishing? Or some other process? Not the Philippine process, I hope.

    I believe this is known as the "J.P." (for Jose Pidal or Jackson Pollock).
