Transforming plain shoes to paint splattered beauties!

Tags

Instructions

  1. 1

    Obtain a pair of shoes, in this case I used some half price converse.

  2. 2

    Decide what color paint you want to use.
    Since these shoes are black I used neon fabric and acrylic paint.

  3. 3

    This is optional:
    Sew on any buttons to your shoes before hand.

  4. 4

    Unlace your shoes and place them either on a tarp or a place that can get paint splattered and no one will mind.




  5. 5

    Now it moves quickly:
    Simply select your first color.
    Place it on either your brush, a tooth brush or place it on the fingers of your gloves.
    These each create a different splatter pattern:
    *paint brushes- depending how much you've got on there, will make a small line then a large almost circular splatter
    *toothbrushes- work good for making delicate splatters, which can be done by pulling the neck back and releasing.
    *fingers- work well when trying to get the paint a certain place and usually speed up the process

  6. 6

    Now just simply let dry, relace and wear with whatever!
