The Angelus Brand was started in Chicago, where Paul T. Angelus arrived almost a century ago. Being a Greek immigrant, the way his business developed could best be described as the ultimate American Dream. Shining shoes, he made a living for himself until he had saved up enough to make the trip to Los Angeles. After a while he had secured enough savings to open up his own shine stand. The one shine stand quickly made way for two more, and he shortly brought his brothers over from Greece to help the business take off. He was crowned “King of the Bootblacks” and shortly after, developed his own shoe shine. The demand for their shoeshine exploded, thus the shine stands were sold and focus was put on the development of the product we still know today. After a period of time, the business was sold. Shortly after, the demand faded in reaction to changes in the manufacturing process. The Angelus brand was bought back, and restored to its former glory! As a result of the changes, Angelus is now once again the top manufacturer of shoe polish, leather paint, leather dye and other accessories.
In the end it took four coats of paint to cover the dark green, but it was so worth it! Look at them!
Yes, I could easily reupholster these two but since I don’t know if the Angelus Leather paint will work on vinyl I wanted to start with a manageable project. Just in case.

Many of you discovered this blog because of my Painted Leather boots post. They were painted using Angelus Leather paint and they turn out amazing. When I bought the paint I also picked up their “hard” additive that treats the paint so it can be used on plastics or vinyl.
To make the leather paint stick to vinyl you need to add Angelus Hard plastic adhesion promoter.
Prepare: Removing top finish of shoe is necessary. Use High Quality Brushes advised to avoid brush strokes. Apply with a fine paint brush or sponge pad. Allow to dry between coats. Also may use spray gun or a air brush. For best results, make sure acrylic is clean before applying. Clean up equipment with soap and warm water. For higher gloss and scuff protection, apply a coat of Angelus Acrylic Finisher, Satin Acrylic Finisher or neutral leather paint after paint is dry.
Angelus Leather Acrylic Paint will not crack or peel when prepped and applied properly to your custom sneakers. Once completely dry, Angelus Leather Paint will be completely water proof.

Much like leather shoes, there are a few steps you need to follow to ensure the paint or dye adheres properly. Always deglaze the leather first. This step will make sure that any finish is removed and give the paint a clean canvas. After painting use an Acrylic Finisher to both protect the new paint job and give it the finish you want. That could be a High Gloss or a Matte, depending on what look you’re going for.
Keep things monochromatic by painting it a single color or use multiple coats and taping or stencils to add a design. Because you get to choose the color and pattern, this is a great way to create a custom piece of furniture especially designed for your space. So you can take that red couch that never quite worked in your living room and give it the makeover it’s always needed.
