Hello I have taken a gold painted vintage ceramic Victorian shoe and transformed it into a piece of shabby art work -and update it. It is 11" tall and 10" long. I took a soft cottage , light blue and painted the shoe. I them shaded the folds of the shoe so it gives the appearance of being soft. I painted the buttons white and then applied pearls to the tops. The last button has a butterfly on it and the colors of the piece. The inside tongue is painted a very soft grey blue to give it definition and depth. The heel and soul are white. I painted the base a combination of familiar shabby colors. There different shades of pink, white, grey and hints of green. I then did a rub through on the entire piece to give it age. Inside the shoe are white silk flowers with a butterfly that is painted the colors of the shoe. I have included the flowers not as a selling point but, to provide you with something to have when you receive it. They certainly are easy to replace with other flowers or show it with nothing at all. ..All my painted pieces are
sprayed with a protective finish.Your piece will be an original and there will NEVER be two exactly alike and are marked 1 of 1. Perfection-as is produced in an assembly line, is not my intention, it is art in 3 dimensions-this is why they are DistinctiveByDesign. You will see my paint strokes and the love I put into each piece. I spray all my acrylic painted pieces with a finish to protect the color and the paint. I am new to Etsy and hope you visit my shop often as I will continue to put on a variety of items-including vintage . I pack with care using packing materials.
