What sort of paint?

Aramado (author)paqrat2009-09-18

what types of paints are there?

paqrat (author)Aramado2009-09-19

Oil, acryllic, latex, watercolors. Probably others as well. I would guess watercolors wouldn't work too well. I see where spray paint is used to test the stencil. Is it also used on the shoes?

Aramado (author)paqrat2009-09-19

yeah but i used paint that is used to paint a room on the shoe

ikoda (author)2009-09-06

WOW! At first I thought it was just an ugly stencil elephant.. But now I see it, it's an elephant's bones. Pretty cool.
