NOW, ON TO THE VIDEOS!
Video 01: A Quick Introduction & Prepping Your Workspace
What you need in your workspace and why.
Prepping Your Workspace – RECAP:
- Table covering
- Apron/Painting Shirt
- Two containers of water: One for rinsing your brush, one for erasing mistakes
- Cotton swabs (for erasing) and a paint rag
- Brushes – mainly the FAN BRUSH
Video 02: Prepping Your Shoe
Prepping your shoes (or bag) is THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP in the process.
Prepping Your Shoe – RECAP:
- DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!
- If your shoe is LEATHER, prep with RUBBING ALCOHOL.
- If your shoe is MANMADE LEATHER, prep with 100% ACETONE.
- If your shoe is FABRIC, no real prep is needed. Just dust off any dust, or spot treat oily stains when applicable.
Video 03: Applying the First Coat of Paint
Applying the First Coat – RECAP:
- The FAN BRUSH is your best friend!
- Use SOFT, PARALLEL STROKES when applying the paint, as with nail polish.
- The first coat rarely is enough. Don’t let its appearance discourage you!
Video 04: Applying the Second Coat of Paint
- Allow the first coat to dry to the touch before applying the second – about 15-20 mins.
- Use the SAME FAN BRUSH with the SAME SOFT BRUSH STROKES.
- Generally, only two coats are needed. If you need a third (or fourth) coat, follow these same instructions again.
- Many thin coats work better than fewer thick ones (drips, streaks, etc).
Video 05: Touching up the Sole and Sealing the Shoe
- Use a SMALL ROUND BRUSH to touch up the sole of your shoe.
- Apply the SEALER in a thin coat using the FAN BRUSH.
- Wash all brushes with warm (not hot) water & soap when finished
