I finally finished my custom-designed ultra-cool ombre vans! It took me only 2 days to do them.. It could have been just one but I started at midnight on Saturday so I had to finish the other shoe on Sunday.
This time I decided on doing something simple – ombre shades of purple. Simple enough for starters (like me), but very nice looking. I used only 2 colors of paint. Dark purple, and hot violet/fuchsia (I don’t really know how to describe it), and mixed them to get the “ombre” effect.
It was SO fun to do. I wore them the next day and got many compliments. They look so fresh and original!
Here are some pics of the process…
First, the paints and the white canvas shoes.
Next, one shoe half done. Notice that I hadn’t mixed the colors just yet.
First shoe done!
Now the second one..
