I think they look amazing!  No problems here.  If I saw them in a store I would totally buy them.  Great job!

Beautiful!
What brand of paint markers do you use? I can't get mine to blend for color gradients.

i used Y & C FabricMate for the grey and black. it's much more like an actual marker than the push-til-paint-comes-out type that i used for the white, which makes it more quickly and efficiently blendable.

in terms of shading, i would suggest either using a blending instrument (i like to use my fingers) right away when fading one color out on a dried background, or to blend two colors together, i do hashing into each other (do you know what i mean?- i can try to explain if you don't) and then using the lighter marker to work them together using small circular strokes. you just have to be careful to wipe the marker off (thus the dirty hand picture) right after you blend.

good luck!

I usually paint on leather & vinyl, do you think they would work?
Thanks!

wow, i have no experience with that. leather, maybe- i would assume it's porous enough to absorb such a watery medium. but vinyl, i just don't know. since i painted over the shoes before using the paint markers, they were a very non-fabric-like surface, and it still absorbed fine. the markers cost me about $2.50 each, so it might be worth it to buy one and try it out.

Those are lovely.  I'm amazed by the detail.

You might be able to seal them using fabric medium (stuff sold to mix with acrylic paints for painting on fabric), but it might end up making them shiny, which you might not want so much.

I found the shoes board recently, so I've been on wisting shoes like crazy... and someone (can't remember who exactly) used fabric scotchguard on their shoes. Maybe that would be an option for you. Smiley

Amazing! You did a beautiful job! I usually don't like embellished things because I wear pretty plain clothes but I think these shoes are great! Keep up the awesome work!
