shoes for my tiny footed friend :)
the friend really wanted a pair of alice in wonderland shoes so i made these for her really hope she likes them! this project is a little tricky as its a tiny detail your trying to paint and my friend has the foot of a fairy! tiny! just dont forget to varnish! i use a spray as its less streaky than the paint varnish. all supplies can be bought in a local craft or games workshop :)

You have quite a few amazing shoe painted projects.. I have never thought about this before.. I may have to contemplate now because I love Alice In wonderland inspired stuff especially Cheshire Cat and these would be awesome to wear... If they are a bit scuffed up, does this still work well?
