STEP 1
Ensure the leather surface is clean and dry to the touch.

STEP 2
Apply a small amount of Angelus Leather Preparer & Deglazer onto a rag, sponge, applicator pads, cotton balls, or Q-tips.

STEP 3
Wipe down the desired area and allow the product to completely dry. This will remove the factory paint/finish, leaving a clean surface that Angelus Paint will best adhere to.


STEP 1
In order to prepare patent leather you will need high grade sandpaper and adhesion promoter. Lightly sand down the patent with the sand paper.

STEP 2
After giving it an even sand, wipe down the areas using Angelus Leather Preparer & Deglazer.

STEP 3
Once dry, apply two to three even coats of adhesion promoter allowing the shoes to dry between coats.

Adhesion Promoter is a product (usually aerosol) that is used to help paint adhere to non leather surfaces such as rubber, plastics and more.


 

Although Leather Preparer and Acetone can both be used for the same purpose, Acetone has much stronger chemicals which can harm or burn leather due. Leather Preparer is a safer alternative which will not harm leather when applying.

Angelus Paints utilize a flexible, self leveling, non-cracking formula that adheres to multiple surfaces such as leather, vinyl, patent leather, canvas and more when prepared properly.


Angelus Paints can be used on any type of shoe from Lebrons, Jordans, KDs and Kobes to all canvas and running shoes. With the proper preparation it can adhere to any surface.


Although airbrushing may seem like the best choice to many, paintbrushing is a very good option in many circumstances such as minimal areas and detail work. Preference would be solely up to you in this case.


To prevent cracking you must prepare the surface properly. Preparation is key in achieving quality results.


To protect from scuffs and scratches be sure to apply finisher to your work when done. Even light coats are prefered.


Paint can be tacky if you apply on a surface that isnt prepped correctly or on fake leather.


Although Angelus paint can be applied to soles of shoes, it is not guaranteed to hold up. Therefore it is not recommended to paint on soles. If done so, apply some type of Sole-Protector to preserve the painted bottom.


In order to paint sock liner or any mesh/nylon areas we recommend mixing Angelus paints with GAC-900. Mixing Angelus Paint with GAC-900 in a 1:1 ratio with give the best results. The fabric/mesh will need to be heat-set after the paint has dried in order to keep the material nice and soft.


In order to paint/dye laces you need a fabric medium mixed with Angelus Paints with a 1:1 ratio. Be sure to heat dry the laces after applying the mix.


The amount of paint needed for a project will all come down to the area that will be worked on. 1 oz normally is enough paint to cover a standard pair of shoes.


Paint takes about 15-30 minutes to dry in between layers. After job is done it would take about a day to fully air dry. Same as a car that is painted, you wouldnt want to drive it right off the lot immediately after its done.


Paints can last up to 3 years of stored properly in room temperature.


Angelus Paints carries a vast assortment of matched colors to several of todays most coveted shoes. You can find those colors in the Collectors Edition.


Walk on Paints are made for heels and loafers BUT are not meant to apply on the soles of sneakers or any other shoes. It will not hold and eventually wears off.

Paint

Angelus Paint can be used on any leather surface, as well as many other surfaces as long as they are prepped properly. Some of these other surfaces include: Canvas, Fabrics, Mesh, & more!

Angelus Paint is not recommended for use on the very bottoms of shoes as the paint will wear away as soon as you start walking in them. Angelus Paint also works great on certain Soft Midsoles (Jordan 3’s, Jordan 4’s), and will not hold up on hard midsoles (Converse, Vans, Jordan 1’s, Air Force 1’s, etc). We want you to have the best experience possible with realistic goals.

Not recommended for outsoles of shoes.

 


 

 


How to clean suede
Applicator Pads
Angelus Leather Paint
Paint Brushes
Leather Preparer & Deglazer
Masking TapeThe above items are the essentials for applying Angelus Paint properly. Begin by prepping the surface using the Leather Preparer & Deglazer and Applicator Pads, cotton balls, or a rag. We find that our Applicator Pads work well because they do not leave lint or residue behind and they are strong enough to not fall apart during use. This will rid the surface of contaminents and/or the factory finish if there is one. This will allow the Angelus Leather Paint to adhere properly to the leather surface.

Once the surface has been prepped, use the Princeton Paintbrush Set to apply multiple thin coats of paint, rather than one or two thick coats. Allow each coat to dry to the touch before applying the next coat. Using the Blue Pro-Mask Tape to mask off areas you do not want to get paint on.
