I have just received word from Alexander of Dandy Shoe Care that the first round of patinas are finished on our collaborative David boot model, which was a new boot for the J.FitzPatrick collection. He was kind enough to take pictures (as he is very good at doing) and shared them with me. As you can see the first round of patinas were quite bold ones but showed some great artistic capabilities by Alexander. And since inspiration is often gained in the form of seeing, I thought that I would pass on the sharing by displaying the ideas of others here on the blog.
While the color choice is a bit too bold for my personal taste on the particular pair, I just love the idea of the multi-colored ‘blotched’ patina. However, I would have loved to see it in different shades of blues and/or burgundies.†But I am sure that I won’t be let down and that after seeing this post, someone will go for it! It is after all becoming Alexander’s specialty as I seem to be seeing it more and more in his requests from clients.
Remember, these are all just examples of what can be done. What you want doing on the boot is entirely up to you and limited only by your imagination.
