I had the great opportunity to swap with jillybeans for the Back to Hogwarts Swap round 5 this month. After some internet Pinterest stalking I discovered that she pinned a pair of painted Marauder's Map shoes to her Harry Potter board. I had never painted shoes before so this was my very first attempted at making them for her. I did some research on what type of paints to use and found that Angelus Acrylic Leather Paint works best being that it's waterproof and won't crack or peel.
I found few examples of other people's version of the Marauder's Map use as inspiration and here is what I came up with.

First I painted both shoes to look like aged scroll paper / then I drew the map design on with a pencil. Using at least 5 burgundy 05 ultra thin Micron pens I went over the lines paying close attention to the map details.

I painted the middle of the map with more paint and completed the words with white paint.


I had so much fun painting these for her Smiley
