Angelus Tutorials: Custom Green Tones

This month Bryan Phillips from @swellguycustoms is breaking down just what you need to know to start mixing and creating your own custom greens with Angelus Paints. With so many Angelus Paint colors to choose from it can seem overwhelming just what colors to use to create the shade you want. Here are some tips for getting the results you want for creating customs of your own.

1. Angelus Standard Greens

When creating your own custom green a good place to start is by betting familiar with the standard greens that Angelus has to offer. From the classic green to light green, olive and Grinch Green, there are lots of greens to choose from. Green is a secondary color on the color wheel, which means it is created by mixing equal parts of two primary colors, in this case yellow and blue. The amount of yellow and blue you use can help you create different shades of green.

2. Lightening and Darkening

The easiest way to lighten your green is by adding white and to darken it add black. This will desaturate the color as it makes it less bright with the introduction of new tones. Remember it's easier to make colors darker than it is to make them lighter, so try to mix colors from light to dark.

3. Nike Air Max 90 Green Customs

Now you're ready to create some customs using your newly mixed greens. Bryan is using a pair of Nike Air Max 90s for his version of Angelus green customs. The first step with creating any pair of custom sneakers is to remove the laces. Since these shoes have leather uppers they also need to be prepped with Leather Preparer and Deglazer

Next he created a custom palette of five new colors by mixing greens, whites and blacks.

An Artist Palette can be a good way to access and mix colors. The Palette allows you to see all the colors next to each other so you can adjust as needed before you actually start painting. 

Once the shoe is painted, he uses some Angelus Matte Acrylic Finisher to protect his custom green Air Max 90s.

Custom Sneaker Spotlight: June 2021

@mache275 takes the original earth tones of the Air Fear Of God 1 'Oatmeal' and adds some more muted greens and pinks. A rich terracotta color finishes off the uppers and compliments the earth toned soles. Create your own version of this colorway by combining softer colors with richer earth tones.

@tragik1993 takes Nike and neon to the next level. From the hovering swoosh to a bright pink, green and yellow colorway, everything about these Air Max 90s looks fresh. While the color combination is great, it's the white accents that really help the bold colors come together.

@astrotorfcustoms brings us his version of the OFF-WHITE and Nike collaboration. Just as Virgil Abloh puts his own spin on a Nike classic, @astrotorfcustoms took the OFF-WHITE "AIR" look and created a red, black, white and beige colorway to create a new look.
