They are selling these same "Bones Ballet-Flats" on HotTopic right now for $40!!! Wtf? I saw them & remembered i had plain black flats i never wore in my closet, & knew i could make it! Free New Shoes!
(if u dont have black flats, im sure u can find some for under $10 at walmart or shoe store)
Also try this on Heels or Vans flats!
ALSO in different colors: green zombie bones, pink girly, OR black bones on white shoes!! Endless combinations!
+ Old flats (mine are leather)
+ Acrylic paint (for outline)
+ white Fabric paint
+ small Paint brush
... & most importantly
+ Drawing Skills!!
First, use the white Acrylic paint for outline drawing, because it washes off if you make a mistake. ;)
First paint the middle toe, down the middle of the shoe ...follow the curve of the shoe a little as well.
Theres 4 bones!
Then paint the next toe almost exact same way.
Then do the "big toe" ...which is shorter, & ONLY HAS 3 BONES!
...All other toes have 4 bones.
On the other side, draw the 4th toe. Same as first 2, just lil shorter (see in next pic).
**Use wet q-tip to fix mistakes!!**
& finish with 'pinky-toe'. Has thinner, & shorter bones.
& your finished sketchin the top!!
<<<--- Should look like this.
Now for the side:
Start near the heel; draw this shape (in pic). Its the heel/ankle bones.
Then draw 2 connecting square-shape bones.
Followed by a regular shape bone.
Make sure it looks like they fit together, like a puzzle piece. ;)
Once it looks good enough ...just trace over the whole thing in white 'Fabric paint'. This will make it permanent (even on slick surface shoes).
Be careful, bc it does not wipe off easily; stay in lines!!!
Let the right shoe dry ....
REPEAT PROCESS for left shoe (just toes r backwards now)!
Let dry over-night before wearing. Use wet q-tip to clean off any leftover acrylic off shoe.
And your done!
Show off your new X-Ray Shoes!
