Magmatrooper Boot Paint Advice

Recommended Posts

Here is a quick tip for anyone having issues painting and maintaining those ruby red boots :)


"There are two types of paint that are very great for getting the colors you want for your boots. The first time is a flexible brush-on acrylic specifically made for leather-type fabrics called "Angelus." It can only be bought online but you can mix them to perfectly match the color you want. The other type of paint I prefer is a spray-on shoe painted called "Meltonian." Meltonian is sold at Dr. Shoe Repair at the University Mall and is also sold online. If you are going the Meltonian route, I recommend that you first strip the protective layer of the boot by rubbing it all over with an acetone cotton ball. To get a nice shiny finish, I recommend polishing it all off with Angelus High-Gloss, though you may not need it so just get it at your discretion.

And I would start with black if you are doing Angelus since it is more obvious what parts need more coats. Do white if you are going the Melatonian route."


I acquired this from a fellow costumer and I myself bought the black judhors and used the Angelus red and fire red to paint my magma trooper boots.

I have so far had to touch up paint at the end of each year as i troop alot in terms of maintenance.


Hopefully this is helpful and if anyone has other tips feel free to post replies :)


Also there is word that someone is making red boots now check out this thread:

I use Meltonian boot paint. I believe the color is bright red. I'll get the numbers off the can and post the info soon. I really like the color match with my red armor.

But, I do have to repaint the boots about once/year. I'd like to try the acrylic paint from Angelus see if it lasts longer.

I've had success using vinyl paints for car interiors on boots as well. You can usually find it on Amazon out a local car parts store. Again, you'll probably want to touch them up on occasion.
