I made these totally sweet shoes (sorry, had to toot my own horn for a minute Smiley) for my partner, hippiejo76, in the Beatles swap. I fell in love with them and even tried to fit my feet into them (despite being two sizes to small they were just a little too tight....) then realized I knew she would love them and sent them on their way. Smiley I'm glad they found a loving home! Now I just have to make more. Wink



















Thanks for looking! Smiley

These are seriously top quality, I think you should find a specialist outlet to sell them - they are wonderful, i love your art work, they would fetch a good price Smiley

Really beautiful!

What did you paint with? Did you use a gluebase?

Thank you all!

I did hand paint every part; they took me around 7 hours or so, I think. I painted them with acrylic paint mixed with textile medium, and Sharpie markers for the outlines; I couldn't find anything to waterproof them with, so hippiejo is taking on that challenge. Smiley
