These are really cool! I've been wanting to try painting shoes. Do you have any tips for a first-timer?

Uhm.... I sketch out a quick design on paper before hand so I had a hard copy of what I wanted. Also make sure the shoes are clean. My daughter had worn her shoes before I painted the Ponyo ones, so the pen didn't work well in places.

Also make sure your paints are fabric useable, so they bond with the fabric. You should see it listed on the bottle/tube if they are.

Just go for it! It took me a day to work up the courage to actually draw on these. I was so worried I would mess it up and then the shoes wouldn't look good.  But its actually really fun and stress relieving, for me at least. So just go for it. I'm sure you will love them.
