these were painted from the time frame of april until june. i'm kind of obsessed  Roll Eyes & it doesn't help that walmart sells them so cheap at just 6 bucks! (:

these were the very first ones i painted with my grandma's old shoes. they're really worn out because i wore then a couple times before the picture was taken.




these were the second ones. they're pretty plain and are only painted in the front. i was thinking of putting the lyrics to "under the sea" on the backs & sides, but haven't gotten there yet.


mario shoes! these were inspired by shoes i found on this forum by thedish
(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=112016.msg1069976;topicseen#msg1069976)
and was painted as i was getting hyped up for my nintendo birthday party (:





these were painted as a prize for my friend for winning one of the games at my nintendo birthday party. she didn't want it nintendo themed though, and just wanted it random. i also painted the sides and backs, but the front is the most exciting:


aaanndd lastttlyy, these were painted today! potterpuffs! (http://potterpuffs.livejournal.com/) they're semi-finished. there's still too much white space and i don't know what i should fill it with. any ideas? (: i'm thinking of just drawing a background to it, like on the shoe with cho & harry, the sky and some grass or something. and i REALLY hate the side of the right shoe with the glasses and scar. i ran out of ideas so just drew something to fill in the white space that was bothering me. haha.





annnnd i'm finished! thanks for looking! & thanks even more if you actually went through and looked at and read the whole thing! i was VERY excited for my first craftster post Cheesy & feedback would be teeerrriifffiicc!

The lettering on the back of the HP shoes looks really good! The mario ones are great, too!

Very cool, love the HP ones.  You've inspired me to go buy some slipons to transform!

& i just used regular ol' acrylic paint!

i don't have any protective covering on it though. i do need some but don't know what brand or what kind of protection to get for it..? i wore the ocean ones to the zoo and it started pouring rain, and my crazy friends and i decided to keep running in the rain anyways and the penguins on those shoes are wearing off, so yeah i suggest you should get some protective covering to put on it if you plan to wear it in crazy weather!

Holy crap, these are so cute!  You did a good job on all of 'em.  The HP ones are friggin adorable.
Try clear sealant, or a varnish.  Camp Dry may work too, from the camping section.
