I had a pair of roller blades lying around which I never wore because they were not very attractive, so I decided to make them cool.
If you want to do the same, you will need:
  1. An old pair of roller blades
  2. White Acrylic paint
  3. Painters tape/ masking tape
  4. Silver & Black sharpies

Step 1: Step 1: Base color

My roller blades happen to be all green, so to prep them, I cleaned, dried, and lightly sanded them. If yours are not solidly colored, you may want to paint them after prepping. (I used Acrylic paint and Sharpies for all of my detailing.)
Haha, this is a great idea - when I saw the thumbnail, I thought you'd bolted wheels onto a real pair of Converse!
I did too!! I was like oh cooool!!! :D <br>
I take that as a huge compliment!
Please, do.
Several thin coats are better than one thick coat. There's a label on every paint can that tells you that.
VERY true! I am just not very patient.
Miss Cerqueira sent me to look :D Nice work!
i think i have to make an instructable on how we cut real shoes back in the day and attached them to our skates to get proper puffed look:) <br>ah memories:)
That's what I wanna know. :)
Swap in white laces and it would be great!
I'd like to see some pictures of these in action.
