    I love how your special finish makes them look a little like shell, Gdot.

    I guess it's time to reveal my 'secret' weapon. I started with an undercoat of Tarrago Shoe Cream in Metallic Gold. (A little goes a LONG way). But that is what is giving them a little bit of irredesence that is a bit like shell. I then applied various Meltonion creams in navy, congnac and bark.

    So far these shoes have not seen anything but cream polishes and Renovateur. Now that the pigment from all the creams seems to be settling down I'll start building depth with Tan Kiwi wax/polish. As I think you can see the finish lacks depth - because it literally has none yet.

    Time will tell how it turns out. I'ts all just an experiment. :happy:

    Augusta! You are so close to Atlanta and you didn't come calling?!?!?!?!? :cloud: Damn Yankee.

    The shoe/sock combo is swell too. Even if they are Versachey hoytie toytie falderal from the Spooster......................

    btw - Augusta can only mean one thing right now - you have tickets?

    Shoes are SCCHHHHWWEEEEETTTTTT!

    Are these your first Carminas? If so - what's your initial impression?

    Drive a stake through the socks, hit them with a silver bullet, then burn them. :facepalm: :D
