If your boots are oiled then you’ll have to deglaze them prior to beginning step 1 below. See the video below for instructions.
STEP 1: TAPE
STEP 2: PREP SURFACE
STEP 3: EQUALIZE CARTRIDGE & TIP
STEP 4: APPLY TUFF TOE
Hold the boot with your left hand (if you’re right handed) and begin on the left side. Apply slowly from the sole to top. If you apply too quickly the material will come out runny and take-off on you.
Applying slowly allows the material to begin setting so that it is thicker and easier to manage. If the material begins to run on you, simply turn the boot so that the material runs back into itself.
STEP 5: REMOVE TAPE
Remove the tape within 30 seconds of finishing your application. To do this, make sure you pull carefully so that the tape doesn’t pull up material and sling it over your fresh new application.
STEP 6: ROTATE
The material is still setting up and if you simply put the boot down the material will run to the sole. You want the material to be focused on the toe tip, so rotate the boot for 1-2 mins with the toe tip pointed down.
STEP 7: CURE FOR 24 HRS
Prepping Oily Boots
Check your boot for oil levels. If painters or masking tape won’t stick then not much will. Use Comet or Deglazing Chemical to prep oily boots, as shown in this video.
