DIY Painted Canvas Shoes

Materials You Will Need:

  • A pair of canvas shoes
  • Painter’s tape
  • Acrylic paints
  • Paint brushes

Step 1:

Tape off the toe and front edge of each shoe to ensure paint does not go anywhere that it is not wanted.

Step 2:

Paint a base color in the taped off area. It can be any color, as it will serve as the background for everything else you paint. You will want to paint two or three coats of your base color to ensure complete coverage.

Step 3:

Remove painter’s tape. Let base coats dry completely before next step.

Step 4:

Choose an animal or person’s face that you’d like to adorn the front of your shoes with. I chose a wolf/fox/coyote type animal. 

Start with painting the front silhouette shape of your chosen animal or person (see above).

Step 5:

After the silhouette has completely dried, you will add in the facial details (eyes, ears, nose, mouth, etc.). Remember to let each layer of paint dry.

Happy creating! πŸ™‚ If you have any questions or troubleshooting, please let me know. Thanks for viewing.
