Introduction: Doctor Who Tardis Sneakers
As any Doctor Who fan knows, the Tenth doctor famously wore Converse sneakers. I added Tardises to mine to add to the Whovianism, and scrawled "Don't Blink" on the back, in celebration of one of my favourite episodes.
What you'll need:
- A pair of sneakers
- Leather scraps
- Acrylic paint
- Mod Podge
Step 1: Cut Tardis Shape
Cut two pieces of scrap leather into Tardis shapes. Look at an image for reference.
Step 2: Paint Base Colour
If your leather is a dark colour, start by painting it a light base colour.
Step 3: Paint Blue
Build up shades of blue until you are happy with the colour.
Step 4: Start Adding Details
Add details such as the lines of the blocks on the door and the black sign.
Step 5: Add Finer Details
Add windows and the text in white. I used a toothpick and pin to paint this on.
Step 6: Seal Your Tardises
Seal with a layer of mod podge.
Step 7: Attach Your Tardises
Use glue to stick the Tardises onto the shoes and then stitch to secure.
