A friend of mine is really into japanese street fashion. A local fashion zine was doing an article about her, and she asked me to paint a pair of shoes for her to wear to be featured in the zine with her. She asked me to incorporate the rising sun symbol, japanese symbol for "love", and red, black, and gold into them. I didn't take a picture of the inner sides, but I put some more japanese symbols around the heel. She gave me a pair of her old hi-top vans, which looked like this but the black toe/tongue part was a light grey color:


Soo, here's what I came up with:



Excuse my crappy phone pictures. The parts I painted black were suede, so they look shiny-ish from the paint and varnish in these pics. They were blurry when I sent them to my comp so I tried to sharpen them, but they just look more ghetto. hahaha.

Neat! So what kind of paint and varnish did you use? Would you recommend the brands you used?

sneak- Yes, I do everything freehand.

priscilama- I use acrylic paint mixed with textile medium, so that it adheres better to the fabric and stays more permanent. You can find it at any craft store that carries paints. I believe the brand I used is folkart... but I'm not sure. The brand of varnish I use is DecoArt All purpose paint sealer. good luck!

Does Acrylic paint work on the rubber portions of converse, do you know? I'm trying to paint an Alice Nine theme on Converses for my best friend for her birthday.
