Hey all

I am in love with some shoes I want to try my hand at - these from Shoe Bakery are amazing, I want to get that kind of drippy effect on the ones I upcycle but no idea what acrylic mediums are Sad



Can anyone advise? I'm assuming it's some kind of gel, rather than acrylic paint - googling has gotten me nowhere Sad

Thanks in advance!

It looks like it is Snow-Tex

This can be found at most craft stores quite easily and cheaply.  it comes in white but can be colored with paint. It can also be watered down to drip more...it does dry hard as a rock. Google snowtex...there is also a glitter one!

Cute shoes...fun for a night out!

Acryl mediums are a range of different kinds of liquids that you can mix with your acrylic paint to give it a certain structure.
I'm not in the US, but you can probably find those near the acrylic paint in your craft supply stores.
