Step 4: Finishing the shoe
Use it to define the edges of your word. (picture 1)
You will use this technique to fill in the "paper bridges" you made earlier in the stencil.
I HIGHLY recommend you use a thin pointed sharpie for this, because the regular ones are much too thick, making it much easier to mess up and mark something else.
For the curves in the words, use a steady hand to draw in the curve.
After the outline is done, color in the blank spots in the word with a regular sharpie.
One shoe is done! (Picture 2)
Tips: Be careful, as sharpies smear, so let them dry.
Don't rush yourself! This requires care.
If you don't end up with a perfect outline, just go over it again in another layer, but don't make the words too thick by doing this.
If your shoe has small holes (to let your foot breathe), just put your sharpie inside to color in the edges.
Try not to be so picky on how it turns out, as it is possible for small differences from the stencil and final product.
If a letter overlaps on a flap on the shoe, (picture 2), try your best to make the word look continuous over the flap. Take your time!
