Recently I discovered the ColourCraft fabric paints! When I saw all the lovely colours (especially the rich blues!) I knew exactly what to do! Galaxy shoes!
Armed with a pair of white trainers, sponges, tape and the fabulous fabric paints I set to work. It was really enjoyable and therapeutic.
Firstly, I removed the laces and then taped the rubber strip around the base of the shoes using masking tape. I used smaller pieces of tape around the top edge to ensure I got in as close as possible without taping the fabric of the shoe. I then used a thicker tape to cover the larger section.
I used a combination of the metallic and opaque paints and started with two blues and two sponges.
I fully covered the shoes with patches of the dark and light blue paints. I was sure to cover the 'tongue' of the shoes as well.
Once that was done, I took the pink and purple metallic paints and, with the sponges, applied the colour in smaller patches on top of the blue paint.
I then used a fan brush and applied white splatters all over the shoes. I watered the paint down a little to ensure that I achieved nice splatters.
I then painted 9 stars over each shoe in different places and replaced the laces. I am so happy with my galaxy shoes. It was so easy and so much fun! I hope you will have a go too.
