They were actually really easy to make. I started with a pair of blue canvas shoes that I already owned. For the design I wanted the shoes to be black hence all the glitter. If you don’t want glitter every where I would suggest plain black shoes or pre-glittered shoes.
The image I used was the JP logo printed from my computer. I decoupaged it onto the canvas shoes applying the glue several times. The red ink had bled a little so I painted over it. After it was dry I sprayed it with a clear sealant to try and protect the image. Then using a paint brush I covered the rest of the canvas with more glue and applied the glitter (I used ultra fine glitter). I tried to make a mixture of glue and glitter and apply it but that didn’t work too well for me.
Because they weren’t black to begin with I had to let the glue and glitter dry (shaking off excess glitter) and redo the process again. If you decide to do this I would suggest starting with a pair of black shoes because it is a bit more forgiving if you miss a spot. Mine you can’t tell unless you get up close, but I know I missed a few spots.
I made Jurassic Park bows which you can see on my blog. Also, I made femur earrings which I will be posting on my blog soon.
If you decide to make the shoes let me know how they turn out! I am planning on trying to make a pair of comic book shoes next.
