DIY: lederfarbe








Time for another DIY post and just in case you're too lazy to read this text or you don't have the time, there is one sentence summary that will tell you all you need to know.

Recently I got these boots and was very pleased with them because they're both warm and comfortable,  but ( don't you just hate it when there's a but) the faux leather started to peel off right away. I wore them only once and this is what they ended up looking like. I repeat: only once. 

Meditating over the issue for a while, I decided not to get rid of them because they are so warm and even more importantly because they were a gift. So, I bought some leather paint (different stuff than textile paints not only in structure but in smell as well. It pretty much smells like a road kill).

 As you can see, the result isn't that great. However, this leather paint worked like a charm on leather shoes ( I used it on two pairs of leather shoes on spots where they started to look old and worn. The paint just got soaked in the leather beautifully and the result was very clean.). The reason why it didn't work on these boots is probably because they're faux leather.  

My recommendation is that you buy this leather paint as it is something great to have around the house. You can use it to touch up leather belts, shoes...you name it. The price is about five euros but it will probably last you a long time. 


Summary: Leather paint is a handy (but foul smelling) product that will work great on all leather items but it can't be used on faux leather shoes.

Nedavno sam dobila ove čizme i bila sam jako zadovoljna s njima jer su jako udobne i tople, ali (zašto uvijek mora biti ali?), umjetna koža se počela guliti nakon što su jednom nošene. Jednom, doista samo jednom. Razmišljajući što bi, odlučila sam da ih neću baciti, ipak su tople, a što je i najvažnije poklon. Tako da sam kupila boju za kožu (drukčiji proizvod od boje za tekstil i po strukturi i po groznom mirisu). Kao što vidite, rezultat nije baš sjajan jer ove cipele nisu kožne, ali kada sam tu istu boju koristila na dva para kožnih cipela koje su imale par mjesta gdje su počele izgledati iznošeno, e tada je rezultat bio odličan i boja se divno upila u kožu. Mogu reći da bi vam preporučila imati ovo u kući jer je dosta praktično, a možete ovu boju koristiti da osvježite remen, torbicu ili bilo što drugo kožno. Cijena je ako se dobro sjećam bila deset maraka u onoj trgovini gdje je prije bio OBI, a sada je opet neka njemačka kojoj se ne mogu sjetiti imena, ali mislim da je dostupna u hobby dućanima. 

Sažetak: Boja za kožu je praktičan ( ali smrdljiv) proizvod koji sjajno djeluje na kožu, ali nema ga smisla koristiti na umjetnoj koži.

  1. I've only ever used faux leather so this paint won't be much use for me but wow, there's such thing as leather paint? I must be living under the rock as I seriously have no idea of its existence before this. LOL!

  13. I'm so sorry that they peeled. I have gotten super picky about only buying real leather boots ever since something similar happened to me. It can be heartbreaking!

  15. Awesome boots, but obviously they have seen their days. I don't normally paint my shoes and I always try to buy shoes that do not require any maintenance...

  30. Koja steta da su se cizme tako brzo pocele guliti! Ja mrzim kada mi se to desi, zbog tog problema morala sam baciti vise torbi i cak jednu od mojih omiljenih jakni...jednom kad se to pocne guliti, nazalost, nista nece puno pomoci, jer i kada se oboji dio koji se ogulio, opet se primjeti, a i nastaviti ce se sve guliti! To je valjda losa kvaliteta materijala! Znam da su mi se gulile i stvari iz H&M-a, i "no-name" brendovi, kao i Top Shop i Guess!!! Uzas! Ti si ih barem probala na neki nacin spasiti!

    1. da, barem privremeno sam ih zakrpala. Mislim da kad je obuća u pitanju, prava koža je još uvijek velika prednost.

  31. I used to use something similar on my school shoes. Works a treat but the smell is horrid! :) Rebecca | Rebecca Marie xx

  32. You were so brave to use that paint, I know the smell is really terrible ! Anyway, sorry to say it but faux leather items all end up the same way...after a while, all my faux leather bags ended up cracked like your boots. I rarely buy faux leather bags or shoes for that reason, leather is much more easy to handle and it will last for much longer. Kisses

  33. Oh my goodness, how upsetting. Do I need to ask how much they cost you? I'm going to assume on the low end. I'm always afraid to buy faux leather for this very reason. I feel so bad for you. At least you had a great solution. Not you can get back to being stylish and warm. Love it.

  40. I had no idea they had such thing as leather paint. Must have been a bummer to see the leather peel off after one use. Glad you found a solution to have these a little bit longer.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
