Well this is my first post Smiley
I've been apart of this group for almost a year now, just browsing and commenting.
All you crafty people give me lots of inspiration!

Well I got a bag of size 9 women's shoes for free from Craig's List and I was STOKED! Finding size 9's in thrift stores let alone free is HARD! And I have become addicted to painting shoes, it's so much fun Smiley

I was only able to use and fit into three pairs but Hey they were free. All three pairs were the same style just different colors (Maroon, Hunter Green, and Cream) I only took before shots of the first pair I did but they were all basically the same...

Before:

The maroon stuff was this fake plasticy pleathery stuff and it was in pretty bad shape, torn up etc... I had to painstakingly peel that off..it took quite awhile once I got that off I had to remove all this sticky stuff. This is was they look like after peeling all that stuff off.

These are the after shots I really like how they came out...these were the shoes that were orig. maroon.

These are the second pair I have finished. I still have a pair still left to do but I was so exicted I wanted to post these...plus if I would have waited there would have been WAY too many pics
not that this post isn't loaded with them LOL
I am really happy with how there turned out also these were orig. hunter green (YUCK!)


Thanks for looking! I called the brown ones my button shoes and the pink ones my Barbie shoes Smiley


Pics are gone, sorry!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Oh that you all VERY VERY much!

I used acrylic paint with textile medium added to make it into fabric paint.
I have painted a canvas pair previously (that I am working on repainting now) that I had painted turquoise with just acrylic paint that was very brittle is started cracking and flaking off. Added the textile meduim to the acrylic paint makes it more flexible. I haven't had any cracking or flaking problems with these two pair. The only thing I have noticed with these is that the places where the shoe bends tend to crease but they haven't cracked yet so that's better than the first pair I did. Once I finish the other two pair I will post those as well.
OH and the sealer I used was acrylic varnish.
