Removing Lumiere
  • Hi, I painted my black leather shoes with Lumiere Metallic Gold. I was wondering if there is any way to remove the colour and paint them with a different one? Thanks for the response.
  • Hi Kadashi,

    Thanks for writing in.
    Once the paint has dried it is fairly difficult to remove without damaging the leather. I have successfully overpainted leather shoes with Lumiere. In fact, I have one pair I've painted three times. The only place I've had cracking is on parts of the shoe that had deep stress wrinkle to start with and that is after months of use.
    Be sure to clean and dry the shoes well prior to repainting and allow them to air cure for 24 to 72 hours before exposing them to excessive water.
