After I'm done cleaning my leather boots, I like to make them extra waterproof by rubbing on a little petroleum jelly(Vaseline). This isn't super important for these boots as the inside has a waterproof liner and really close stitching, but I do it any way so...
Anywhoozle, I have a pair of homemade leather boots and the stitching is nowhere near as tight. Also they have no sole(Mua ha ha!), kinda like moccasins(or squidward). I always add excess jelly to the stitching, just to make sure.
The title? Why yes, I do have the comedic maturity of a 12 year old boy.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Finger Painting
So, to start, your going to want to glob a little jelly on the expanses of leather. Then your going to finger that jelly into every nook and cranny of your boots.
Pay special attention to the seams and stitching. Evenly finger that jelly over the parts of the boot. Do not try to do the whole boot at once. Just take your time(it's actually quite soothing...well I enjoy it anyways).
After your done fingering it, it's going to be sticky and wet-looking. I don't like leaving them like that so I wipe off the excess with a boot rag; in this case, a sock. Make sure there's no shine left and that's pretty much it.
Step 2: Now They're Ready
Well, that's all folks. Whether you like to play rough or gentle, these boots are ready.
Of course this is only one of the many steps to Boot Foreplay. The kind and extent of foreplay required for your boots will vary from boot to boot. Remember, every boot is different and you should take the time to learn how to get your boot ready before play.
Ok the 12 year old inside of me is done now. Inside...well not like...damn it Timmy! We're done ok...ok:(
