History of the Angelus Brand
The Angelus Brand was started in Chicago, where Paul T. Angelus arrived almost a century ago. Being a Greek immigrant, the way his business developed could best be described as the ultimate American Dream. Shining shoes, he made a living for himself until he had saved up enough to make the trip to Los Angeles. After a while he had secured enough savings to open up his own shine stand. The one shine stand quickly made way for two more, and he shortly brought his brothers over from Greece to help the business take off. He was crowned “King of the Bootblacks” and shortly after, developed his own shoe shine. The demand for their shoeshine exploded, thus the shine stands were sold and focus was put on the development of the product we still know today. After a period of time, the business was sold. Shortly after, the demand faded in reaction to changes in the manufacturing process. The Angelus brand was bought back, and restored to its former glory! As a result of the changes, Angelus is now once again the top manufacturer of shoe polish, leather paint, leather dye and other accessories.
What kind of Products do we Offer?
The leather paint of the Angelus Brand is an acrylic based, flexible yet strong paint coat, that can be used to recolour your leather. The paint is water-based and non toxic. It also sticks to multiple surfaces and can be used to paint a lot of different types of leather. There are a few different kinds of paint: Standard, Metallic, Neon, Pearlescent, Collector’s Edition, Glitterlites & Glow in the Dark. Although there are around 150 colours available, these different paints can be mixed together to create even more colours. The paint can also be mixed with thinner and other additives to influence the thickness. This is paramount when using an airbrush, as the paint will otherwise clog your equipment. Check out all the available colours in the colour chart here.
When you want to colour your old leatherwear instead of painting it, you can either use leather dye or suede dye. This will shine a transparent coat on your existing leather, which is permanent. This product naturally works best on smooth leather types. If you are looking for a way to paint sneakers, you can use leather shoe dye, although leather paint may be a better option. When you think the colour is too dark, a denatured alcohol or thinner can be used to thin the paint. This will make the sheen a little bit lighter, giving you a different colour. You can even dye furniture, leather belts and more. Get your leather dye kit here, and enjoy fast delivery time! Do you want to know how to dye leather?

Preparation & Finisher
Preparation & Finisher are products that are indispensable when you are working with leather paint, also described in the step by step guide to painting your shoes. Before you paint, clean the leather with preparer to remove any old leather finisher and dirt. When done painting, add some angelus finisher to give the leather a little glossy shine. When you want to go for a matte finish use the corresponding Matte Finisher.
Paint additives are used to alter the consistency of the paint to your liking. For example, when you are using an airbrush, a paint thinner is used to make the paint flow more freely, allowing you to apply a more even paint coat. Duller can be used to reduce the gloss effect some paints or finishers have, and 2-Soft specifically is used for the softer areas of the shoe. 2-Hard is an additive that, when mixed with Acrylic Paint, can stick to harder surfaces. Be aware that the surface needs to be non-porous, otherwise it won’t work. Angelus paint additives are the best way of thinning, thickening or altering the consistency of the paint.
Clean & Condition
When restoring old leather, chances are that the leather itself just needs a little magic. Instead of this, a lot of people just use leather paint or leather dye. Sometimes it’s even better to just use some cleaning supplies to clean the leather, or use some conditioning supplies to make it shine again. Use a brush in combination with Angelus preparer & deglazer to brush off all the dirt. For conditioning, use some Lederbalm or leather conditioner to make the old leather shine again. Angelus brand products are what you need when your shoes need shining! Even the shoe shine (or shoe polish) that made the brand famous can be bought at leatherpaint.co.uk!
