Stain Wood With Shoe Polish

Craft tip: If you have small pieces of unfinished wood that you would like stained, use liquid shoe polish. The applicator on the top helps keep your hands clean.

Hi. This is a pretty neat tip. I make my own knitting needles. I wonder if I can use the shoe polish to stain it? Would you have any advice. Thanks.

Hello !

I very unfortunately discovered that hair colour products are very good to stain wood and they are not greasy and would not stain the wool.

At least now my accidental wood staining experience can be useful to someone !

Really hope this helps !

Years ago, in my poorer and maybe more creative days, I used paste shoe polish to stain unfinished picture frames for pen and ink sketches I had made as gifts. I applied it with the polish brush and buffed it out with a buffing brush and a cloth. The frame was tooled so the polish was darker in the recessed spaces. It looked really good.
