Preparation & Finisher
Preparation & Finisher
What is Preparer?
Preparer is essential before painting your leather shoes. Why? Because the preparer & deglazer fluid will remove any excess oil, wax or factory finish that might still be on there. This allows the leather paint to have the best adhesion possible. The paint is also better protected against cracking or breaking! Use a clean rag and start applying the deglazer on the shoe. Make sure you get it into every nook and cranny, otherwise your paint will not stick. It’s very important to only use the preparation fluid on leather. Other materials like rubber will not react well to the product.
What is Finisher?
Finisher is a liquid that is applied after the paintjob is complete. With a finisher you add a glossy finish to your painted leather! Choose the type of gloss you want by selecting one of the 5 different variations offered in our finisher category. If you want to have a matte finish you can use the normal finisher. However, this finisher still has a little bit of gloss to it. To create a completely matte finish you can always add a little duller to the finisher. These paint additives can be used in combination with Angelus Acrylic paint and change the application slightly. For more information you can visit the Finisher category.
