I love how your special finish makes them look a little like shell, Gdot.
thanks man, ur looking urself!
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.
Stitchy - props on the new carpet!
