I painted these with regular acrylic paint for a friend of mine. The tops of the shoes are the front of sugar skulls and the back of the shoe is the bottom jaw of the skull. I wanted it to look like she had her foot in the skull's mouth.

"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.

I would so wear that. I think I will have to go get me a pair of sneakers to butcher.

These are all kinds of beautiful!  Did you seal them or treat your paint with anything to make sure it sticks?

Wow, the "painted shoes" bar is really being raised high lately!  I thought the same thing looking at these:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=196713.msg2080275;topicseen#msg2080275

The level of detail here is just amazing.  Did you put that on with a brush?  How on earth did you get such thin lines?  And they are so straight, doesn't the bumpy texture of the shoes make that almost impossible?

Your subject matter is genius.  I love DoD and would have never thought of that.  This sort of inspiration is what keeps me addicted to the Crackster!

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).
