Hi! I'm totally in love with those Doctor Who Van Gogh shoes. Like holy crap. I was wondering (if that was a commission,) how much that costed? And I was also wondering how well the paint stands against rain and general weathery things? Thanks so much! :) from giantnoveltytelephone
I charged lower than I would have normally for them, at about $40 :) That’s because it was for a close friend and they finagled it out of me. Those I think would probably be about $55, maybe $60. They provided the shoes as well.
And as for keeping up in the rain, so far all of my shoes have worked okay! I use fabric paint pens, and acrylic paint which becomes plasticy when it’s completely dry, but I also mix it with a textile medium to make it bond better with the fabric. The shoes I paint is canvas as well, which helps it stay anyway since that’s what acrylics are meant for. When I’m finished painting them, I spray them with a few layers Scotch Guard, which waterproofs them quite nicely. I’ve worn I think all of my painted shoes in the rain at some point, and I wear them to Disneyland all the time so the paint should be pretty permanent :)
