These are the first shoes I've ever customised myself. They were boring plain white canvas shoes:



I used 2 coats of really watered down acrylic paint to stain them red and let them properly dry completely. I used a stencil to make the spots the same size and painted them with slightly watered down black acrylic. Once the dots were dry I painted some silver glitter fabric paint over the spots.

I love them so much and they get lots of admiring looks!  Grin
