Star Shoes previous project next project textile painting home


Walking like a superstar on stage - I've realized this dream by painting various silver stars on some old shoes. Definitely an eye-catcher when combined with a black jeans. Eventually, I've thrown them away, because I'm feeling too old for these extravaganzas.

I didn't know whether the textile paint would stick to the suede leather and withstand the water and dirt without heat-fixation. Fortunately, the paint stuck extremely well. I've applied the paint through some small flexible cardboard stencils.
