Step 1:

First, you’ll need to grab your brown Tulip Slick Dimensional Paint and get to work! The initial shape should be very natural looking and easy to do - splotches if you will. Feel free to get experimental and try different shapes and sizes.

Step 2:

While your brown paint is still wet, you can get started on the black paint. Simply partially outline the brown shapes to start formulating the cheetah print. Do not trace the entire shape, just a random selection. Before you know it, you’ll start recognizing the leopard print pattern.

Step 3:

From there, repeat the above steps on both shoes to complete your unique animal print design.

DIY leopard print shoes are one of the easiest ways to completely change the look of a shoe. Now that you’ve done it to shoes, what else will you spot up? A bag? A clutch? Don’t shy away from experimenting!
