Step 4: Step 4: Put in the Details

Once the paint is completely dry, peel off the tape.
Your skates should already look pretty kickin' but the more details you put on, the cooler they are going to look. I jazzed mined up with:
  1. Converse style logo: White acrylic painted circle, drawn on with green, black, and silver sharpies 
  2. Stitching: Drawn on with black sharpie 
  3. Hardware: Two small circles drawn with silver sharpie
I like the classic old school high top look but you can make these as fun as you want! It helps to look at a real sneaker or a picture of one (especially for drawing the stitching).
Haha, this is a great idea - when I saw the thumbnail, I thought you'd bolted wheels onto a real pair of Converse!
<p>So did I!! </p>
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.
