I can paint just about any theme, so feel free to stray from star wars!
I have been painting shoes with my durable technique for a few years now, and I'm able to produce them for you're every day wear, a special day or in a collection!
FOLLOW THESE EASY STEPS!
Step #1: The listings price does not include shoes. Find shoes that YOU know fit you well and are comfortable! Make sure that they are made of canvas, suede, velvet or some sort of fabric such as CANVAS OR FAUX SUEDE, leathers and faux leathers are okaaaaay, however, they don't seem to have the same durability as the before mentioned. Plastics and any shiny material will NOT work!
#2: Choose a design! If you want them as pictured, that's fine too. Some variations may have to happen due to the size and shape of shoe you send me (refer to the different heels pictured). Or! Message me about your idea! I am open to ANY theme! Movies, Bands, Comic books, Color schemes, photos, objects, etc! I have had customers be as specific as giving me a list of characters, or as general as leaving it in my own hands. And everywhere in between!
#3: Mail the shoes to me! I'll give you my address anytime you feel you're ready. Then ill paint them, of course!
#4: Pay at any point, even in payments! However, I will not send your shoes to you until ALL payments are completed. I can set up a listing or invoice you when you are ready.
*Please allow anywhere from 10-12 weeks for them to be completed due to demand. MOST get done way before that, but occasionally it does take very long due to high demand. If you need them sooner, message me and ask. It MAY be an option.
*The total amount posted on this listing DOES NOT INCLUDE THE SHOES (Please send me your own), the work to be done, and the return shipping!! Shipping includes insurance and confirmation within the United States.
**Due to the crazy amount of emails I get asking me to reveal the paint I use on the shoes and tell everyone how I magically make them durable, I will say this once here: It is NOT magic. It's fabric paint. It's made to go on fabric and be washed gently. Also, paint is paint. Have you ever repainted a room and dripped on your jeans only to find that once its dry, its on there forever? Paint alone won't wash out. Paint made for fabric definitely will last the life of your shoes. Thank you!***
All questions welcome!!
I ship everywhere I can!
