I used to have an obsession with converse, so these ones were looking quite average, and as they were brown it was a bit of a difficult colour to pair anything with... So after doing my Glitter wedges I decided why not fix up these babies!!
I originally wanted to cover the entire shoe with fine glitter but after a few coats of paint I decided I liked the look of the shoe and always thought I could add the other glitter later!
Gather your materials
Including your shoes
Remove the laces
Stuff the shoe with newspaper to avoid getting paint on the inside of the shoe
Tape the section of the shoe you want to paint. Press down hard so no paint can seep into the section you want to be kept clean (try and be very precise)
Begin painting, use a large brush for the larger section of the shoes
Paint paint paint. It can be messy as you can always do another coat, avoid getting the sole of the shoe and the inside
Use a small brush for the precise areas (logo) be careful, if you get any on the section you want to be kept clean use a damp cloth to wipe away the paint as soon as possible
Glitter paint, yay!
Glitter, glitter, glitter
Fix up any areas that are obviously uneven, peel away the tape being careful to not pull any of the paint off
Finished! You can dye the laces to match the new colour, or if you wanted a more glitzy look add some fine glitter (see my DIY Glitter wedge tutorial for these steps)
