Aztec hand painted shoes
This was my first pair of painted shoes from Old Navy back last fall. I completed them around December. This was the pair on which I really learned how to do this.
I used Aztec-inspired patterns.
My Posca paint pens were outstanding with one exception: the gold iridescent marker bled a bit (on this top sun/circle). That is very unusual for Posca pens. I did not have the trouble again with any other pens, but I stopped using the metallic pens on canvas shoes.
On the back, I used Sharpie pens.
I painted my circular "suns" with white pain on the opposite side of the shoe.
This was my underlying drawing.
I used a light art pencil as the base layer.
This was not as complicated a pattern as I completed on the white canvas shoes earlier this summer.
Have you painted shoes? Drop me a line with your tips and tricks.
I'm gearing up to paint my first pair of Van's white canvas shoes. I'll keep you posted on the progress.
