Drawing On My Shoes
A few weeks ago I got a air of plain white canvas shoes from Micheal's for about 6USD. I had always wanted to draw on a pair of shoes. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to draw on them... Lady Loki and Lady Thor!
First I made a digital drawing of what I wanted the design to look off and then I used that as a reference. I cut out the pencil middle man and drew the outline in a Sharpie marker fine tip. I was going to use pencil, but it wasn't working out, so I went all in! Double or nothing!
Now, I purchased some fabric markers but I was not able to find all of the colours I wanted. So to make up for colours I didn't have, I used my Copic markers (For things like skin).
After colouring, I went back over the outline for each section. If you plan to do this, wait for a colour to dry before using another colour that will touch that colour. I had an issue with bleeding when I was using black and yellow near each other, but didn't wait for the yellow to dry.
I can't get these wet because they are likely to smudge. I can't put waterproofing on them because I didn't stick to fabric markers. I read that Copics will smear if you try that. So I will just avoid wearing these on rainy days.
Below are photos of the process of customizing my shoes.
