An absolute must-have to get the best results when using Angelus Paint. This is an all purpose shoe cleaning product that gets a shoe deglazed and ready for customizing by breaking down the original finish. This is a step above the 802 Spot Remover and is one of our favorites for prepping a shoe for customizing.

Great paint

The paint was perfect for my project! It paints on leather beautifully and the leather stays soft and crack free. The paints first arrived broken and flooded the package, but their customer service was awesome, very prompt and sent a replacement within days!

Great paint, don’t use too many layers

My Angelus paint worked great on my leather shoes! I took an all-black pair of leather flats, stripped them with Angelus cleaner, and then painted them white with the leather paints. It worked great and looked amazing, but did end up with some major creases in the paint due to the leather bending a little when I walked. I followed all instructions about waiting for them to dry. I guess my 12-ish layers of paint is more than the recommended number of layers, lol!

Works great

This product works great getting my shoes ready before I paint them, it even gets rid of some stains and scratches on my white shoes, so I can paint on a blank canvas

Impressive results!

I wanted to change the color of a pricey leather ottoman that was in almost new condition) from dark brown to ivory/cream WITHOUT damaging the leather as it was a very good quality of leather. I took a chance and used this deglazer to remove the original finish and was afraid because on the 1st swipe, the color came off a little (not completely as I could tell it was just the topcoat). I allowed the leather ottoman to dry for a few days, going over it with a very damp rag of plain water since I was afraid of cracking...not sure where I came up with that but it makes sense to me. After about 3 when fully dried, I went in with my first coat of Angelus leather paint and had no problems throughout my project. I will say that the ottoman is tufted and it took a little extra rubbing with the deglazer to remove the finish on the buttons that sit inside the tufted areas.

Great Product!

Great product that really works! Just be careful when applying. This stuff is strong, and you want to test a small area to make sure you don't use too much. Also, tape off areas you don't want compromised carefully!
