I bought a pair of cheapo maryjanes to paint.  I freehanded a few kitty pirate skull & crossbones on them.  I might do the entire shoe later, however it took well over 2 hours to do these and about 5 coats to get good coverage.  I used acrylic paint mixed with textile medium because the maryjanes are made of a stiff fabric-like material.  They're a little on the sloppy side but what the heck, it adds character. LOL! I hope you like them!

Man, I love those. Did you get the shoes at family dollar? Because I wanted a pair of those to do something similar with but they didn't have my size? and they were uber cheap which makes it perfect for experimenting designs with! Great job!

Yes I did!  I had to get a 1/2 size too big but they fit reasonably well.  Check back maybe they'll get some more in.

And thanks for the good comments guys!  I appreciate it  Cheesy
