This is my first attempt at this. Hope you all like. Homer's head got a little distorted during the painting process Sad Which is weird because initially Homer was dead perfect to the model, and Bart was a little off. But somehow Bart came out pretty good, and Homer- Oh well. Sad



That is obviously the toe. The heels say El Barto on the Bart one, and a word balloon with "Doh" on the Homer. (u can't really see that it's a word balloon. it got cut off in the pic. i'm too lazy to retake the photo)

My boyfriend thinks that I should fill in the white parts of the shoes with something else. But I don't know what. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the kind comments guys!!!
PolkaDot: I used Tulip brand Soft brushable fabric paint. (it says they are velveteen colors. I'm not sure what that means.)
For the outline of the word balloon I used: DecoFabric, black fabric  marker with a 3mm point.
And for the outlines on the characters, I used Y&C FabricMate non-toxic black pen. This point was thinner, but it doesn't say what size on the pen. I think it worked well, and was easy to use, but this is my first time using fabric paint, sooo...... I don't really have anything to compare it to.

And thanks RachelKristin!! I think that I should leave them as-is too!!!

I think it just means that you have to heat set it and there will be some sort of texture when it's all done. I use Tulip branch fabric paint, too, but I always get the Soft kind because you don't have to heat set it, haha.

Those are really cute, I love The Simpsons. Maybe you could draw Itchy and Scratchy on them, too, or something? I don't know. I usually just leave the sides blank when I paint my shoes, so that would be fine too. Let the toes and heels speak for themselves.

If they were my shoes, I would leave the rest blank. Otherwise it might get too busy. But, of course, it is up to you.

I would like to know where you got the shoes? What a great blank canvas!

Great job, I love them!

I think that I probably will leave the sides blank. But I LOVE the idea of putting Itchy & Scratchy on something!! Hmmm.... what could I put an Itchy & Scratchy design on?Huh
