We Tried Every Leather Paint Until We Found Our Favorite

Since the early days of our company, we've always encouraged everyone to make Rustico products their own. The unique, authentic leather we use not only varies from hide to hide, but your individual use greatly impacts the look of the patina. To top it off, our products can be engraved with the text of your choice. We want you to feel like our products are made just for you because, well, they are!

We're excited to show you another way to personalize our products and lots of other things you own, like shoes, jeans, and furniture. You can do this with leather paint!



After trying the leather paint options out there, we found our favorite and it's what we've chosen to carry on our website. Meet Superior Leather Paint!


Here are the top 3 reasons Superior Leather Paint stood out to us:

1. Thicker consistency: It has a thicker consistency, so you will find yourself using less paint and a bottle will go a lot further. If you need to thin it out, you can simply do so with water. No additional products needed! When a paint is thinner to begin with, thickening it requires additives you likely don’t have on hand.

2. Buttery texture: Superior's paint is defined as a "heavy-body acrylic," meaning that it has a really nice, buttery texture. We love how smoothly it glides on any surface.

3. Acetone-free deglazer: In order to paint leather, the surface needs to be prepared with a product called "deglazer." Typically, deglazers contain acetone, a harsh chemical with a strong smell. Superior's deglazer is made without acetone, so it's mild and almost scentless!


If you’re ready to customize the look of your shoes and other accessories, any beginner or expert can easily get started with a paint kit from Superior Leather Paint. Each kit includes 12 bottles of paint and they really do go a long way. Try it out, let us know what you think, and be sure to post photos and tag Superior!
