Hand-painted and ALGEBRAIC!

These are my absolute favorite shoes! They turned out a lot better than I hoped, too. The time it takes is probably off; this took somewhere between 5 and 10 hours. (But that's probably just because I work slow)

Instructions


  1. How to make a pair of plimsolls. Adventure Time Shoes - Step 1 1

    First, aquire a pair of canvas shoes. They don't have to be anything pricey. I got mine at payless.

  2. How to make a pair of plimsolls. Adventure Time Shoes - Step 2 2

    Next, sketch the design you want to do on the shoes with pencil. If you draw lightly enough, you can erase parts.

  3. How to make a pair of plimsolls. Adventure Time Shoes - Step 3 3

    (Optional) If you are worried about getting paint on parts of shoe you don't want to, take over those parts with painter's tape or masking tape.

  4. How to make a pair of plimsolls. Adventure Time Shoes - Step 4 4

    Start painting with a base coat for the background of your design. I chose yellow :)

  5. How to make a pair of plimsolls. Adventure Time Shoes - Step 5 5

    Continue painting the design one color at a time, until it's competely filled in.

  6. How to make a pair of plimsolls. Adventure Time Shoes - Step 6 6

    If desired (and it probably will be) outline your design using a thin sharpie or other thin permenant marker.

  7. How to make a pair of plimsolls. Adventure Time Shoes - Step 7 7

    Finish off by coating the shoes with some sort of spray fixative, preferably a matte finish. Look for one that is UV and water-resistant and good for use on outdoor work. I bought mine (not the brand pictured) at JoAnn's.

  8. How to make a pair of plimsolls. Adventure Time Shoes - Step 8 8

    Once the fixative dries, you're done! Now go out and show off your awesome shoes!
