DIY Fairy Kei Painted Sneakers


Hi everyone~
I've been extremely interested in making fairy kei themed accessories lately ^^. The style is extremely DIY-able, so of course I found myself tempted to experiment. This isn't really a tutorial...more like an incomplete photo narration of this project ><

I was inspired by these pictures, and my design was like a combination of the two:



Okay!


You will need:
  • Plain canvas sneakers
  • Paintbrushes
  • Fabric paint


Start by painting the shoes in your desired base colors.


After the initial layer of paint has dried, begin painting your design.










.....I had no idea how to be more specific about this tutorial, so...sorry ^^
I plan on making a few more tutorials like this wherein I am more specific.
