WIP of the Michelangelo Side sharpie91.tumblr.com/post/6850…
These particular shoes were bought at Rue21 and that's the brand as well. Just Rue21. They have flowers on the inside. :I
I used acrylic paints purchased at Joann such as Apple Barrel, Folk Art, and Craft Essentials brands. Nothing special.
For the line art I used a Stained Sharpie Fabric Marker.
No, the paint does not crack and fall off. At least not a lot. Like most shoes, they'll get dirty and not be as vibrant, but the paints stay on fairly well.
I use a Krylon Matte Protective finish when the paint has dried which helps keep the paint from coming off.
With the background color for each side, I usually get the whole side of the shoe wet and then put the paint on. The shoe absorbs a lot of the paint and I think it helps it adhere better. With the other details, I apply the paint with less water.
Definitely something you'll wear to put your funk on
(p.s i won't copy your design though!)
I really like these!
But I keep thinking about the people who draw on shoes like this and I imagine them throwing a whole bunch of mess up sneakers away
but when in reality they always come out the way you want it
I know because I drew me some Doctor Who Shoes last week
but on paper and I draw with all my artsy pens and pencils I keep on messing up
I DON'T GET IT!!!
I'll pay you! I have a full time job and money!!
One problem... where's Casey?! ;n;
