How To Make Galaxy Shoes

What You’ll need:

  • Plum or Dark purple acrylic paint
  • Navy Blue acrylic paint
  • Light pink acrylic paint
  • Mid blue acrylic paint
  • Light blue acrylic paint
  • White acrylic paint
  • Silver glitter paint
  • 3 triangle 3D sponges
  •  2 rectangle sponges
  • Black canvas shoes (You can buy cheap ones at Kmart or Target)
  • Sticky Tape
  • Papertowels
  • 2 plates
  • clean nailpolish brush or any tiny brush

How To Make:

1) Get your shoes and and put a small squeeze of paint onto your plate. Put all the Blues onto one plate and the pinks and purples on the other. Keep the glitter in it’s pot. Take out the laces of your shoe.

2) On the shoe at the bottom there is a white part which is connected to the sole. Tape the whole of that part so paint doesn’t get onto it. this will make it easier when you clean it up, it also makes it easier to paint without worrying about getting paint onto the small area.

3) With the dark blue paint and your triangle sponge, wipe off some of your paint onto a papertowel so it doesn’t look to bright and strong. Dab it onto a small section of the shoe do the same thng with the medium blue. Make the two colours blend with each other. Repeat the step but with the purples and the light blue until the whole shoe is covered.

4) With the pink you only sponge a little bit in one of the lighter spots to blend it in then with the thin brush draw a little star on top of that with the white. You can do a few small ones around it. To finish off splatter some of the glitter onto the shoe.

5) Wait for it to dry then once it’s dry take off the tape and put the shoelaces back in the you are done! 🙂
