DIY Galaxy shoes

I have been a fan of the galaxy trend since the moment I laid eyes on a gorgeous galaxy legging. Every since I have been dedicaded to adding something galaxy to my own closet. I have been looking around the web but everything seemed so expensive. So I decided to make something of my own. And the thing I love most are shoes. Therefore DIY galaxy shoes!

What you need:
Acrilic paint with the colors you want for your galaxy. (Mine includes light blue, dark blue, pink, purple and white)
A sponge (just a regular cleaning sponge)
A small painting brush
Dark/black shoes made of fabric (so not leather)
Duck tape
Step 1:
Duct tape the soles of your shoes so that you don't get paint on them. Then take out the shoes laces.Make a pallet with the colors you want to use on a surface where you can blend. And make sure you have enough workspace and some newspapers underneath the shoes.

Step 2:
Put some paint on your sponge and start dabbing it on to the shoes. Make sure it has no hard edges to give it that galaxy feel. It does not matter what color you start with. Just try to think about where you would like certain colors and flow from that. Start adding different colors as you go along and try to blend them a bit. Mix some colors together to make different shades and highlights. Don't be to precise.
When you like the look of the base let it dry and do the same with the other shoe. Then let the sit for about 30 minutes.

Step 3:
When the paint has dries a bit its time to place some stars. Take some white paint and sponge some small areas but make sure it's not to bright. This will be the highlights. Then get your little paint bursh and paint on little dots to represent stars. And in the progress make a few bigger stars.
Then let them dry for a day and they are ready to wear!
I hope you enjoyed this DIY !

  2. Can I wash these when I'm done with them, or is the paint going to wash off?

    1. They should be waterproof but maybe the paint will damage if you trow them in a washer

  3. Remember to wear out the shoes before though! That way the crease will come before you paint, and u wont have the paint cracking or anythng like that.
    Gunna give this a try, but how do u avoid it running or something in the water?

  4. Pretty! :D But how do they stand up to everyday wear? I live where there's loads of rain, and I wanted to know if the paint stays on well

    1. It should not make a difference Acrilic paint is waterproof when it dried

  5. I know one can buy a textile medium to mix in with the paint, most require a day after drying and quick iron for the medium to set.

    I've done this to several of my shoes, it lasts for a long time. : )

  6. OMG! These are purely awesome. I really want to do these now only because my shoes are plain (even if I still love them :) but adding a little color wouldn't hurt. ;)
