Things you need for this DIY:
✝ patent leather platform booties (get a pair here)
✝ red acrylic paint
✝ painter's tape
✝ a good flat paint brush
My old patent oxfords have seen me through a few winters and lots of puddles, they were looking shab-city. I saw these Viktor & Rolf shoes after last seasons runway show and would have given my first born for them, had I had a first born...it's a good thing I don't have kids yet.
To get the color right I mixed cadmium deep and vermillion.
You need LOTS of paint.
You need a lot of coats. I did about 20. The more the better, too thin will chip off. Make sure you let each layer dry before the next coat. This is after one...
Be careful when you take the tape off, it's a good idea to have something with a sharp edge in case the tape starts to pull the paint.
I also painted about 1.5 inches in the middle of the shoe lace.
