The glossing technique, also known as “glacage”, produces an impeccable mirror shine resembling the patent leather finish in order to maximise the shine and bring out the depth of the shoe patina. It is common to carry out a glacage only on the tips and heels of shoes and to avoid creased areas in order to maintain the useful life of the shoes. To carry out a glacage, dampen a soft cotton cloth in warm water, dip it slightly into the polish paste, apply the polish to the shoe using a small, concentric motion and gently rub the leather until you obtain a mirror shine. We recommend that you have a look at the shoe polishing lesson on glacage to learn more about this special technique.
