I have recently bought a three dollar pair of white vans at a thrift store(hurray!) and I was wondering what the best techniques for revamping them would be.
-can I dye my canvas shoes nicely without messing up the rubber or anything?
-I'd like to paint them, but I don't want them to look shiny...
-I could sew fabric on there...but I can't think of any sweet ideas...
-sharpies...I don't want it to bleed either.
I don't know. What do you guys think is the best technique?
here's the deal:
    I'm not really into the skull and crossbones sort of thing
    I really want them to be cute and witty...but if it would be just a cool,                        original design, that would also do.

you could paint acrylic over it. Cheesy

But what I did on mine was I used markers..
