I started painting heels about a year ago. I have made a total of 4 so far, but only have pics for 3 of them, as one pair was a gift and I forgot to take a pic before I sent them across the country. They are super fun and easy to make and people seem to really like them. I get lots of compliments and requests to make them for people.

Here is the first pair. I used references from other peoples artwork and photos I found randomly through Google image searches. The goat looks very similar to a Miss Monster piece, though this was not intentional, just covering my bases. They are not for sale and other than posting pics of them here and on reddit once, they just sit in my closet Smiley

Second pair I made, on which I also painted the little button to match:

Third pair I made for my friend from work (it's a bad cell phone pic, sorry):

Here is a link to my imgur album that has a little step-by-step set of pics so you can make some too!

If anyone has any questions, fire away! I will answer as soon as I am able.

Want me to make you something? Wanna see if you can purchase something I posted? Email me:rainybuckel@gmail.com

Wow! I love the first ones so much! How well does the paint hold up? Do you use varnish or mod podge?

Uuuugh, these are so great.
Prim and punk. Classy and sassy. Refined and rocking.

Loooove them.

Sorry for being such a flake. Sad

These are fantastic. Who wouldn't love a sexy pair of heels with an little something extra too them?!  Smiley
