Step 1: Materialz
>Some varied colors of acrylics
>Thin and medium brushes
>Fabric scraps (felt works best-it bonds better and is more durable)
>Any material durable enough to make a stencil ( i used cardstock)
Step 2: Clean and Shiny
Let the converse dry completely (10-15min) and then begin your work.
Step 3: Your Design
Also, i decided to make a design on the inner side of the shoe...a colorful skyline on one, and a view of the sea on the other. I sketched them out on a piece of paper, then drew a faint outline on the inner side of my shoes with pencil.
I went as far as to list the colors i wanted for my skyline. You can also do this, so you know what colors to mix when you get on to painting.
If you are also making the awesome decision to have a wing, make an approximate mark where you want it to be. (see pics for more!)
Step 4: Make Your Wings
Then, using the chalk, i traced the outline in two pieces of my felt, and then cut them out.
To highlight that they were some beautiful wings, i traced an outline of some feathers on the ends of the wings with glitter glue. Leave it to dry while you paint your design. (see pics for more)
Step 5: Painting Your Design
Settle down, get comfy, and go for it!
Step 6: Gluing the Wings
Within the markings you have made, put generous amounts of superglue on, making sure to cover at least 75% of the area with superglue. This will ensure that your wings never come off.
Press your wings down firmly onto the alloted area, making sure it is perfectly between the markings. Now, you must wait for every thing to dry. (which takes quite a while.)
Step 7: Bask in the Glory!
Pat yourself on the back for some awesome work!
If you really want to, add some glitter glue to your designs for extra oomph.
AND, if you want to go the whole nine yards, use a paint pen or spray paint and some masking tape to make a stencil on the rubber toe of your shoe.
Enjoy your hard work!
