Painted Chucks
I painted a pair of black chucks with Mary Poppoins motives - and I love them <3

Sorry, I forgot to take step by step pictures, but I wrote a small tutorial though. As always, I hope it's understandable :D

  • Step 1

    Draw the outline of the picture on your shoes, using tailors chalk.
    I have a chalk pen that's really handy for smaller pictures.
    If your shoes are a ligher color you can also use a soft pencil for drawing.

  • Step 2

    Paint the picture using your fabric paint and a small brush. It's hard to paint thin lines and the outlines will probably look a bit blurry, but if you paint over it a few times and use a small brush it should look fine in the end.
    Light color on dark shoes will probably need 2-3 layers of color.

  • Step 3

    Use the blow dryer on highest setting to dry and fuse the paint.
    Usually you need to iron fabric paint to fuse it, but I found out that the blow dryer works as well.
    I blow-dryed my pictures for about 5 minutes, taking small breaks because I was afraid that the blow dryer would get too hot.

  • Step 4

    Use a moist brush to remove any remaining chalk from the shoe, by wiping over the picture you can also test if the paint is properly fused.

I don't know if it will stay on if you walk through a river or put them in the washing machine, but it did stay on when I cleaned the shoes with some water.
