hi everyone,
this is my first painting shoe project, and i think it won't be the last one. I love this shoe now, it is better than the way it was before.Don't you think so?
i quite like these shoes before but the white stiches on it makes me like them less. So thanks to hoolietta, after reading her topic i decided to paint my shoes. First I rubbed it with sandpaper and paint it with white acrylic paint to make a base. Then I started painting using masking tape to paint clearly.

I used two layers of each color to erase brush lines.
After all the paint dried i used a medium called "satin acrylic varnish" .
It is semi matte and i think it will keep my shoes from the rain.

i'm expecting your comments

Cute. I like the pink accent you added.

I hope that I can figure this computer stuff all out enough to make this work.

I've been wanting to try that but didn't know what type of varnish to use -- hopefully the one you used works!

I love the colors of those shoes!

Feminism: the radical notion that women are people

I loved this project. I am doing my own and I will post here as well.

I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is:  I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a door mat or a prostitute.  ~Rebecca West, "Mr Chesterton in Hysterics: A Study in Prejudice," The Clarion, 14 Nov 1913, reprint
