Hi, Craftster!
I painted these for my boyfriend, who is from Egypt.  I used acrylic mixed with textile medium, but I had some trouble with a little cracking.  So, I went over it and tried to fix it with some fabric paint..we'll see how that pans out.

Any suggestions on what to seal them with??

Anyway!! On to the pictures!!

























Thanks for looking!! Cheesy

These shoes are spectacular! The care and artistic ability really shows in the detail you gave to them. They're beautiful.

Nicely done!

If youve painted on canvas, all you need is any simple spray sealer for acrylic!  I have shoes from over two years ago I've worn MANY times and they've held up pretty dang well!  They could probably go for a touch up about now, but basically, theyve put in their fair share!  So any old spray acrylic sealer will do it!
