Intro: Pumpkin Shoes for a Little Pumpkin
My little boy managed to damage his leather (like) shoes so we decided to 'fix' them!
Step 1: Latex
I decided to use latex as a base coat. As latex is flexible it should not crack easily.
Step 2: Layers
My little one and I put three layers of latex in total. We let each layer dry for about two hours to put the other one on of course. I cleaned the edges with wet wipes ( after finishing each layer off). See pics above
Step 3: Masking Tape and Orange Acrylic Spray Paint
After finishing and drying all three layers of latex, I put a masking tape all over the shoes and sprayed them with orange acrylic spray paint. I sprayed 3 layers in total.
Step 4: Masking Tape Off
I left the shoes to dry overnight. We took the masking tape off in the morning and started drawing a pumpkin face on them, using a permanent marker!
Step 5: Pumpking Shoes Are Ready for My Little Pumpkin
So here we are! My little boy doesn't want to take them off :-)
