hi peeps, I'm new to the community. I'm into making DYI shoes right now. just wanted to say helloo
Yey! I love those other shoes your were thinking of making! So awesome. Did you find any good tutorials for the mod pogde shoes? When you make some you should deffinetly post picture
Welcome to the site!
thanks. i haven't tried them yet. i have alot of good ideas but need to get all my supplies first. all i've done so far is paint some soles
with acrylic spray paint, but i think i'll use enamel paint next time even with the finishing spray they still kinda chip off
those are very cute!
WOW I just posted a pair of shoes that are very similar! Great minds think alike huh?
I used a clear sealant after I painted and it seems to resist water and keep the paint from chipping off, maybe try that?
@ felicity - thanks! I actually did you a finishing spray..i might have better luck with enamel paint?
@tiff- thanks my first time doing this
I just used normal acrylic paint. I have never used the spraypaint acrylic but the texture may be different? Also make sure you strip away whatever surface coating is present before you paint, just roughing up the surface helps the paint stick better.
hmmm thanks will do! i think spray paint acrylic is hard because i couldn't control how heavy it got, and the heavier the coats the worse i think it was for the sole.
Welcome and sounds great to the shoes, that is what I like about this site, so much variety..smile
