And on shoes by AquaticFishy And on shoes by AquaticFishy
Shoes for Jessica :iconrawressica:'s birthday, a la ~Bobsmade.

Hecka fun stuff. I still have a buncha acrylics and matte wood varnish left, so anyone else who'd like shoes just holla. 'Course, you *could* just spring for the real thing at bobsmade... but that's like 95 euro ($142).



NOTE: It's harder than it looks, FELLAS.

haha, no idea. I just play around for fun. I think it's my fanart that brings people around to the shoes once they're done with it.

what acrylics did you use? are they for fabric canvas or will any acrylic hold up?

these were just regular old acrylics (Liquitex I think) sprayed over with matte finish (to waterproof them)

As long you paint on canvas/fabric shoes (that don't have some sort of of finish or paint on them) you should be fine. You can always wipe down the surface with nail polish remover to prep it to help the acrylics stick better and remove any coating that might have been put on the shoe fabric.
