So I have too many boots and would like to experiment. As the topic says I’d like to dye or paint a pair of brown boots black, but not permanently. Anyone done this? Tips, advice?

Thanks,

Dean

Hi. John V., the nice fellow behind Vintage Engineer Boots did something like this to his Road Champs in 2013. You might want to ask him directly about his experience.

Here's a reference to John's experiment from his blog: http://vintageengineerboots.blogspot.com/2013/09/reader-mail_26.html

Argh, that post leaves out the actual dyeing part.  I'll try to get in touch with him.
