Feminism: the radical notion that women are people

OK,

This is my first project inspired but some fabulous shoes I have seen here.
First, I took a blah tan color shoe I bought at P@yless. Second I got two paint brushes, one thicker and a thin one for details. I also used some regular Scotch tape for the heels.
I used a water based acrylic paint in "Deep Red." I left some of the tan color without painting for a dramatic effect. I think they look fabulous now.

Wow! You must have a very steady hand to have painted those. It looks so smooth and neat! Great work! I agree that it looks a lot sexier in red.  Grin

I love them in red!  Very nice.. Smiley

If it's water-based acrylic, you should probably seal them with something, right?

These are absolutely fantastic! I love them!

You probably should seal them, though... I painted some shoes I got from payless a while back, and I sealed them with Mod Podge, and they're still keeping their color, even when they get wet.

Also, I noticed your username! I love that book (I assume you've read the book... I still haven't seen the movie, but I hear it didn't do the book justice...)

I probably should, but I used only what I had handy and I am yet to buy something to seal my shoe... I will be avoiding the rain though Wink

You did a great job.  How are they holding up?  Did you seal them with something?

Hey Trish,

I have not yet sealed them and I am wearing them this afternoon. I will let you guys know how it holds up.
