I was looking for some turqoise boots......but you'll have a guess.......
As i'm never running out of ideas, i asked my one and only Artist Andy Skinner, if it's possible to prepare leather for painting and he said: Gesso works fine!!!! Well, this was the needed answer to start my project....and i pimped my boots.
In between i had a hard disk crash and the first picture of my boots is gone.....but.......you can still see the original beige colour at the bootleg
Thus..i started with Gesso followed by aquamarine acrylic paint
Because it's not that easy to stamp directly onto the boot, i used tissue paper.
After stamping, i spritzed the tissue with dylusions and coloured the roses as you would normaly do for a journal. Teared the motif..
Adhered to boots with Ourdoor Mod Podge
I applyed Dazzling Metallics *Glourious Gold* on top with my fingers to blend everything in...and two finish coats with Mod Podge for sealing
Yes, they are wearable....ask me....you only need to be brave, because people stare at your feets (:o)
Even more a notice. To bringe a little alternation to my art, i booked
