Two-Step Easy Mint Trompe L'Oeil ShoesSupplies:
1. Pair of shoes (I used an old pair), Free
2. Acrylic Paint, $1.39
3. Paint applicant (I used a makeup sponge)
4. Gold Marker, $2
5. Spray Sealant (if you have it/want it)
I chose this minty "Seafoam" acrylic paint, and I love it.
Step Two: Paint your design onto the shoes. I did fake bows and dots, and I plan to either color them in or fill them in with fun fake jewels. I'm thinking of taking apart some vintage clip-on earrings and gluing them on, perhaps, too.
Step Three is optional: Spray the shoes with a sealant. They sell them for cheap in hardware and craft stores, under $10.
But seriously can you imagine the possibilities for painting shoes? Pink? Neons? Polka dots? Nude shoes again? Maybe stripes...
