Get your craft on with Bron... Walking on Sunshine Shoes...

Hello Everyone!

My name is Bron and I'm one of the buzy bees behind the scenes here at Arts and Craft Supplies Online and I love to craft.  I like to dabble in lots of different mediums but most of my work has been with paper crafting and card making.   

BUT today I decided to do something a little different...

I had recently seen our range of Posa markers come in and that got my grey matter thinking of all the things I could do with them and this is how I created my...

Walking on Sunshine Shoes...

To start off with I purchased a cheap pair of white sneekers, like what I used to wear to school back in the 80's (guess that's showing my age!).  I picked mine up for about $30.00 from my local Target store.

I also had a bit of a wander around Pininterest for some ideas and discovered it really is not that hard. 

To start off with all I did was remove the laces from the shoes, I had a rough idea in my mind what I wanted to do...

I grabbed some masking tape and sealed around the sole of the shoe so I wouldn't get any paint where I didn't want it...  Then I sketched out the design I had in mind.

Now for the fun part I just grabbed my Posca paint markers and started colouring in. 

Now to start off I purchased the Posca PC-3M8C Fine Bullet Markers - 8 pack I thought this gave me a good base to start from and as I knew what I wanted to draw, I knew the colours I would be using so I also added a cople of other colours too: 

Posca PC-3M Fine Line Marker - Beige

Posca PC-3M Fine Line Marker - Dark Brown

Posca PC-3M Fine Line Marker - Bright Yellow

Posca PC-3M Fine Line Marker - Orange

It's really is just like colouring in.  If your not confident about drawing freehand you could also trace and transfer the image you want onto your project.

I was really happy with the results although I would say if you were doing a lot of colouring it would probably be better to get one of the larger tip makrers for the fill in work. We have a great range of Posca paint markers for you to choose from, with various nib sizes and shapes.  The Poscas I used have a 0.9-1.3mm tip and worked well for the type of drawing I did.

The last thing I did was spray the shoes with 2 coats of Waterproof spray or Scotch Guard,  I was ready to head to Bunnings for a can but my other half pointed out I had one in the cupboard all ready - Win!   The spary I used recommended 24 hours between each application and I used an old box cut down so I didn't spray everything.

Laces in and now I can start walking on Sunshine....
