Hey all, I just read through the past 24 pages of this thread, and have a few questions before I begin to customize.

1) What is the "sole"?

2) So Acetone is used to remove the factory paint, before applying on your own paint, correct?

3) Can you paint the rubber part of the shoe with success, or will it crack? (I think this has been asked, sorry if it was)

4) Airbrushed used to paint the base layer of the shoe, but can you just use regular Angelus paint to do it?

5) Acetone + Angelus paint = duller colors, right? If I don't have an airbrush, can I just use this method?

6) What do I add to the shoe after I'm done. Satin or Matte.. which one?

7) After the painting of the shoe is complete, do I let it dry before adding the Matte or Satin, or apply it after?

8 ) Specifically, if I was to order from turtlefeathers.net, should I get Satin or Matte?

9) Turtlefeathers.net sells silicone water repellent, is this necessary?

Alright, I'm done with the questions for now.

I somehow got a small, grease-like stain on the tongue of my Gourmet Diablos and I can't remove it. I want to get some paint just to lightly blotch the stained area. The color of the Diablos are eggshell. Is there an off-white, cream, or eggshell color paint you can use for sneakers?

Links please.

odds are, you're gonna have to mix your own paint for that one. beige+white+experimentation=eggshell!

OK, Ive done a little reading and i have a couple of questions I saw but couldnt see an answer to.

1. You can use acetone to take the finish off but on Turtlefeathers they sell Angelus preparer and deglazer. Does that work as well or do you have to use acetone?

2. Im after dope lacelocks too, any ideas where to get decent ones? Im not google shy or anything but I cant seem to find any.

3. Does angelus leather paint work on suede/nubuck or is there special paint/dye for that?

4. Can you use normal Sharpie permanent markers (I find pens easier for detail) if you use the leather balm/finisher stuff (that puts the 'finish' back on) you can get on Turtlefeathers to protect the design?

5. Do you need to use the finisher on top of the paint or is the angelus leather paint ok by itself? (seen two different answers for that one so I want to make sure)

Roll on payday. Turtlefeathers here I come!

Please reply, even if its just to tell me where the answers are cos I really cant see them. (and yes, I do wear glasses).

if you cut all the stitching, then get a heat gun, or hairdryer. and start heating up the glue. careful of heating teh same spot for too long, cause youll burn the rubber.... jus keep the heat gun moving


So to remove the upper sewing part of the shoes from the rubber soles use cut out the thick threads and use a heat gun to pull it apart? but putting it back together what kinda glue?

Heat responsive paint
I saw a few video of Qustom Queen and she uses something in her paint that makes it change colour when heat is applied. Anyone know how to do this technique or is it top secret Queenie ?

I just bought white air force one lows. I use Angelus leather paints for leather. There is some videos of people prepping and painting Air Jordans midsoles. What about AF1:ns? Is it possible to paint tongue or midsoles, will the paint crack?
