I think it’s time for our first installment of DIY Oh No.
Have you seen the craze all over the internet? Painting the tips of your shoes.in either a metallic or bright neon color.
I had a pair of black pumps that I never wore. I believe I got them on clearance. The black ruffle was just wrong on me, so I chopped it off.
Then I taped off the shoes so the toes were exposed and went at it with a spray can of gold.
Except the shoe fabric itself wouldn’t really take the paint. And after 10 different applications, this is what I got.
The spray paint had bled through to different parts of the shoe.
So I took a small piece of sand paper and attacked the misplaced paint. I then re-taped them a little further back and tried the spray paint again.
Another 5 applications and this is what I got.
You can tell the shoe on the left still has some problems. I think I am going to have to try and touch it up with black paint…if I can.
All in all, if you are going to spray paint shoes, stick with patent leather ones!
I might be able to pull them off if I am going out only at night where it will be dark!
