This is a pair of shoes that I painted as a Christmas present for a friend of mine. I decided to do a guide on how to do it efficiently.

Step 1: Materials

For this project, you're going to need acrylic paints and/or acrylic paint pens, a pair of shoes (you can get knock-off converse from wal mart for around 12 bucks), and some spray-on sealer. I use Wilson's Leather and Suede Protector. 
<p>You can buy wonderful shoe paint inexpensively at Dharma Trading Co. Works on leather, doesn't fade of crack, great color selection. www.dharmatrading.com</p>
<p>Are the shoes you're working on here canvas??</p>
<p>that is awesome, I also like to paint on shoes </p><p> you can see all the shoes painting I ever made in my blog </p><p>bndsepatulukis.blogspot.com</p><p>thanks for sharing ;)</p>
<p>Better late than never! You are the only one that I have found that shared the sealer step. I knew there had to be sometime before painting/drawing. THANK YOU!</p>
I was wondering what the best way to do this was, and you answered my question. Thanks for sharing.
