  • Step 1

    Tape up the soles of the shoes so you don't get paint on them. Remove the laces and paint on a layer of the darkest blue paint.

  • Step 2

    Wait for it to dry a bit, then dry brush your middle shade of blue on in patches; the messier the better.
    (Note: Some people prefer to use small pieces of tissue for this part.)

  • Step 3

    Repeat step two with your lightest shade of blue, then use a skewer to dot on the stars. I used a mixture of white and silver for these.

  • Step 4

    If you'd like to have the comets dot on some of your star mixture and gradually make the circle bigger, then drag the paint backwards.

  • Step 5

    While I was waiting for my shoes to dry I painted the ends of the laces and the holes they go through gold to make them pop a bit more.

  • Step 6

    Remove your masking tape and viola - you now have your very own space shoes!

Does the paint fade after a while? Or go off in the rain?

Sorry for the late reply, I haven't been on here in a while! >.<;
Not as far as I know; my paint hasn't changed a bit since the day I made them! ^___^
