*small Dixie cups
Step 1: Prepare (for the Worst) the Shoes
At this time you can tape the soul of the shoe if you want to. The last time I taped shoes it left a sticky residue on the sole, so I opted out of the tape this go around.
Step 2: You Put Your Right Foot In...
On the side of the shoe I painted the outside of the tentacles dark gray and the inside a light gray. With a head pin I dotted the tentacles on the light gray to look like little suckers.
Step 3: You Put Your Left Foot In...
I found that a small lip brush worked best for most of the painting. In each small Dixie cup I added a different color and alittle water to make acrylic water color. (Kinda) Then I painted the Glow Cloud blue, green, pink, orange.
On the outside of the shoe I wrote "Goodnight Nightvale Goodnight" and "And now the weather" with a sharpie. I used sharpie because I knew if I tried to paint the words it would look a mess.
On the inside of the shoe I painted various eyes in purples and grays. With Khoshekh (the floting cat in the men's bathroom) I outlined him in a dark gray, and ended up just filling it in with the dark gray and outlining him in black.
I went back with a very light purple and made little stars and little dots everywhere on the shoe. This is when I relished that the names were not going to happen, and I just painted them with the dark purple.
