MY FUNKY PAINTED SHOES

Continuing on in my love of trying all mediums I decided to jump on the bandwagon and create my own hand painted shoes. There seems to be a lot of interest in painted shoes lately. I had a boring pair of white canvas shoes that were just crying out for color and loving color as much as I do...well, you can figure out the rest.

It was a little awkward painting on a curved canvas but also very challenging and fun. When I wear them out I get a lot of surprised glances at my shoes but only a few brave souls that asked about them. I coated them with a flexible varathane and they seem to be holding up quite well. Think I may just have to attempt another pair.

hi! am just beginning to paint shoes myself, but they don't hold up too well, got small cracks after 3-4 full days of wear. i use acrylic paint & emulsion as a sealant, what do you use and how long have your shoes lasted? thanks, appreciate any help!!!
