Painting Shoes :: Tutorial by Toasts Painting Shoes :: Tutorial by Toasts
Here is a tutorial showing the process of shoe painting that I use.
I hope you like it and find it useful! n_n

The final shoe: [link]

Notes:
1. You don't have to paint white shoes, you can just give any colour shoes a few coats of white paint as a base before doing the rest.
2. You don't have to use acrylic - fabric paint or permanent markers should work as well, this is just one method.
3. "I have a pair of high top chucks I did in Prismacolor markers. I found markers work well, then spray lightly over the top with hair-spray and it protects it. Again, can't get them wet though." From ~Girl-Of-Roses-Hanna


Edit:
OMG!! A DD? Wow, I'm honored.

I love painting and making handcrafts. After graduation, I set up this Studio, dedicating in designing and making hand painted canvas shoes.

Awesome shoe designs! I just launched Sneax (www.sneax.be) which is a brand new online platform for customizing sneakers.

There's also a contest in which people can upload their custom designs, i was hoping you were interested in uploading one of yours? You could win a €100 gift voucher!

If you're ok with it I could also feature some of your work in the news section, just let me know!

You can upload at [link] or email me at info@sneax.be

Take care!

I'm starting my first shoe project after my last exam and this tutorial will be super helpful! ^_^

... tho I wonder if oil paint would work? I normally paint in oils and it's water proof so I wouldn't have to worry as much, but I don't know if the paint will chip

I was wondering since you said you used prismacolor, after you sprayed it didnt the colors move? i tried with sharpies and promarkers(similiar to prismacolor) and it spread throughout the shoe ;o if it didnt want kind of spray did u use?

:D I was wondering if it was difficult and what to use, because I would like to give it a try... with that, all my problems are resolved :D
You're tutorial is very clear and simple! Now, I think I'm more confident to give it a try!
Unfortunately, where I live, I can't find Lukas acrylic paint nowhere... I guess I could find something with almost the same abilities of this paint :)

Well I prefer canvas because it's not slippery. You can try to experiment with leather but I can't guarantee results because I haven't tried it n_n

What will happen if they get wet? Just wondering....I would like to try and paint a pair of shoes but I want to know if it would be bad to wear them out in the rain and stuff.

The ones pictured I actually got wet and nothing happened, the paint didn't bleed or peel. But the shoes got muddy and dirty. So a little water won't hurt, acrylic dries waterproof as far as I know n_n
