SPLAT! DIY Splatter Sneaks.

This one is pretty self explanatory, huh? My friend Rebecca came to the studio today with a brand new pair of TOM’s  in tow and told me to have at it… I used a fluid acrylic paint and used a bunch of thin paint brushes to splatter the paint on. You dip the brush in the paint, and then use your wrist in a flinging motion to get the long stripy lines, or you can shake the brush to make the little dots… You can even squirt right out of the bottle if you are feeling crazy!

But yea, simple is sometimes the most fun isn’t it? This is a great project to do with your kids over spring break, and they virtually cannot screw this up.  Cant wait to wear them, now I have shoes to match my hands and pretty much all of my jeans. Ha.

If you don’t follow my instagram, you should, you’ll see projects like this happening in real time.

Have a great day everyone!

    Does the paint ever come off? Like do the splatters chip off? If so, how culd this be prevented/corrected?

    • Nicole Cohen says:

      No, it doesn’t come off or peel off. The white part of the TOMS got a little bit beat up, but the painted parts stayed fresh and crisp.

  7. I made some and they turned out really well! Thanks!
