painting shoes


my painting career has leap to another level. i paint shoes now! hehe, just kidding... this is just for fun. inspired by this students who make their own money by painting shoes and sell them to other students. and i thought..hmmm, i can do that too. not actually selling, i mean, just the painting part. too bad i can't wear them because the size is too small (the shoes are actually my mother's and was originally white).

acrylic paint.

So wonderful, Enigma! I'm very impressed that you can do that on SHOES! Any issues with the surface? Did you have to prime the shoe with something before painting with acrylics?
Love your work, as always! : )

the enigma said...

thank you everyone.:)
nicole: you should try this, it is fun. ^^
loni: i can see it happens!
tshiu: mau ih dikejar2 kucing, i'm a cat lover.^^
shirley: i didnt face any issue when painting the shoes, probably because i'm not aware there should be an issue afterall! the shoes is in leather (probably fake though), so the brush and paint went smooth on the surface.

Good it is acrylic, else rain puddles would've been lot more colorful if the shoes had been painted with watercolor :)

Mônica said...

Oh, they are lovely, Ella! What a cute idea, and those mice, with their happy faces are irresistible! Such beautiful colors and shading... even though it's acrylic on leather it still has a feel of watercolor.
