Painted Kicks

You are registering for on-demand video instruction.  When your purchase is complete, you will receive an email with details on accessing the instructional video that you can watch at your own pace.

In this workshop you will transform a plain pair of white canvas sneakers* into a wearable masterpiece.

  • You will need your shoes (canvas type is what I'm using)
  • masking tape
  • acrylic paint in a variety of colors + white
  • oil pastel
  • Drying tools (hair dryer works)
  • Paint brushes
  • Makeup Sponge
  • Old key card (starbux card)
  • Stencils (even a manila folder and scissors can be used to make one)
  • Texture tools for stamping (look for bubble wrap or other recycling with texture)
  • Scribing tool like a bamboo skewer (letter opener, ice pick, even a pencil can be used for this)
  • Paint markers (posca)
  • Solid Paint Marker (Sakura)
  • White Gelly Roll 10
  • Fine topped permanent black marker 
  • Optional Sealant: Dorlands Wax or Gamblin Cold Wax

*Note:  I've used black canvas shoes as the base and used Gesso primer prior to class to get them ready to paint.  Also, come to class with the soles taped to cover anything you don't want to paint.

Customized kits are available for purchase and will soon be available in checkout.  Until then, reply to your registration email confirmation if you would like to purchase supplies to accompany this instructional video.
