INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Cover the back panel of the shoes, the edge around the ankle, and the back side of the shoelace holes with painter's or masking tape. Also tape off the sole around the bottom of the shoe, leaving only the areas exposed that you want painted.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint the entire area with Blue and Aqua, applying both to the shoe while wet and letting them blend haphazardly.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Splatter Aqua and Turquoise to the entire area. (The easiest way to splatter is to load the brush with the paint desired; hold it about 1" away from the shoe surface; and pull the bristles back with your finger.)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Trace and transfer the provided pattern across the front and outer panel of the shoe using tracing & transfer paper and a stylus or pencil. Paint in the outline and then fill in the line work, both in White.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Remove all of the tape and re-string the shoelaces.
