Hello Crafster friends ! I have just painted a pair of white canvas shoes : some parts with black sharpies (permanent) and other parts with fabric markers (water based). Now I wonder how I can protect them from dust, stains and water...

I have purchased some Liquitex matte varnish (spray), but the guy told me he was not sure it would make it. What I would like to do is to "seal" the drawings so the colors don't leak... So maybe the varnish is not approriate, maybe what I need is a fixative, but I don't know... I do not dare to spray the varnish on the shoes in case it ruins my work...


I would greatly appreciate your advice and experience. I know I should have thought about this earlier, but I was really excited with the project  Smiley

Many thanks in advance!

I've not used it myself as I've yet to paint a pair of shoes, but I've seen where many people who have painted shoes sprayed them with Scotchgard to protect them.

Set the paint with vinegar and then, when it's dry, use Scotchguard.
