    First, use the white Acrylic paint for outline drawing, because it washes off if you make a mistake. ;)
    .
    Right Shoe:
    First paint the middle toe, down the middle of the shoe ...follow the curve of the shoe a little as well.
    Theres 4 bones!

    ...All other toes have 4 bones.

    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).

They're cute but there a waste of time as the cheap shoes fall apart so quickly and the paint wears off easily
