I'm going to a festival this summer, therefore chances are it will rain
I don't want to carry wellies about, just in case it doesn't rain (and they're not the most comfy of footwear for long periods anyway) so I was pleased to spot these in a charity shop. They're a nice make, but I don't really wear much blue, and they just looked a bit boring being the same colour all over.
Acrylics, sharpies and posca pens to the rescue!
I painted the main fabric panel at the sides with acrylic paint mixed with a little pva white glue, then decided on a mandala style design for each one, and a paisley design for the top stitched area after I had painted it brown. Just a few odd lines and marks on the rubber part, and white stripes up the back.
I did a little light sanding to make them look a bit more worn as they were a bit too brand new looking. I'm sure they'll get nice and mucky and worn in in no time!
I don't have a before photo other than this one, which doesn't show the sides
