INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Clean the shoe surface with alcohol or acetone (for surfaces with a glossy or factory coating) for best adhesion. Have clean paper towels on hand to wipe up drips or smudges. Allow paint to fully dry between coats.

  1. Dip a round tip paintbrush into Blue, then slightly into Turquoise, and then into water. Use this mix to paint one oval petal in the center of the sandal strap. (See photo and attached pattern.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Add two smaller petals next to the larger oval petal in the center. Dip a fine tip paintbrush into White and then into water. Paint this mix over the petals.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint two contoured lines alongside the three petals.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Repeat these steps to paint two additional flowers on either side of the first flower.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Dip a fine tip paintbrush in Yellow and then in water. Use this mix to dab the base of each painted floral. Add Green stems from the base of each flower.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Using a fine tip paintbrush, paint small, 5-petal flowers in random spots using Fuchsia.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Using a fine tip paintbrush, paint the center of each small Fuchsia flower in Yellow.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Allow the paint to cure fully before wearing.
