    Tried my first antique job. Unfortunately didn't have a before pic and will use an online photo. After was done with Oxblood base with some darker mahogany added on the toes, heels and along the stitching. Finished off with some cordovan cream black cream, cordovan wax and black wax. Very pleased with my first attempt.

    Question for those more experienced with this. I have another pair that is a dark chocolate brown...Bruno Magli. Wanted to lighten them up but when I used the deglazer it stripped almost NO color from them. They were still extremely dark brown even after 2 rounds of fiebings deglazer. What does this mean? Could it be they are corrected grain and thats the problem? Any thoughts or advice on how to lighten these? bruno.jpg
