SO, I have stripped and sanded the fuck out of my old docs in order to contort them into the ever so sort after floral docs!
Still got a long way to go, but here are a few sneak peeks...
I have used waproo leather colour change shoe paint for the base coat (which is actually about 5 layers). I painted the flowers with a teeeeny brush and a bloody toothpick.
The hardest bit was painting the leather between the black stitching. very tedious.
Now the good thing about waproo leather paint is that the colours are intermixable so you can pretty much create whatever colour you want, which will come in handy for this project, the only problem is that each bottle sets you back about 11 bucks, but hopefully its worth it.
So in a couple of weeks (months, years) I hope to have them all coloured in and looking like these beautiful babies above.
