Even a shoe (or two) can become a blank canvas--create cool kicks that you can actually wear, if you dare. Then step out in style! This lesson will show you how to make art from a pair of old shoes. Paint, collage, and embellish them to your heart's content!
- Smooth leather shoes (Note: Canvas shoes work, too!)
- Gesso and acrylic paints (including paint writers) and paint brushes
- Enhancements as desired (sequins, coins, lace, imagery, etc.)
|Squeeze-paint is an easy way to keep painted shapes neat.|
3 Incorporate printed words or pictures, your initials, charms, crystals and other small, flat objects. When the adhesive is dry, seal with clear acrylic.
