I couldn't find the liquitex locally and I was eager to give this a go, so I bought some Mod Podge for fabric instead.
Okay, so I really do like them and even though they make me want to bring back sayings like "totally rad", I think they are really fun!
However, I would like to do another pair now that I have done these and know what not to do and what to do better next time.
Here is what you need to make your own:
-liquitex or Fabric Mod Podge
-spray bottle of water
You are going to collect the images you want to use. Remember your images will transfer backwards so do not use text. You can write text in later with your fabric marker.
Next, you brush on your mod podge to the side of the image you want showing on your shoe. Then, place it on the shoe , rub and press it down firmly.
When you are done placing all of your images, let them dry for a bit.
Once dry, lightly spray the image with water and gently rub (NOT PEEL-this is important) the image until the paper begins to come off. This is messy and you will have little balls of wet, sticky paper on your hands, but keep moving....it's worth it!
*some of the image may come off, but no worries, it still looks cool and artsy in the end.
When you are done removing all of the paper, you will brush on a light coat of the fabric Mod Podge and let it dry for about 72 hours before wearing your shoes.
That's it! Be patient and then go show off your new shoes!
Have you done this before? If so, leave me some comment love and let me know how yours turned out and or a link to your post! We love to hear from you!
