I keep looking at these shoes and can't imagine how you can do this! To draw on such an irregular surface and it look so beautiful...love them!!

Great shoes. Are your other businesses craft related?

Thanks so much for the info - I'll avoid the double permanent marker. I'd also heard of people using 2 coasts of Mod Podge after drawing on them, but I'd think either Scotchgard or a waterproofing spray would be best.

What talent! I'm always looking for new ideas, think I'll give it a try. DGD(9) would love to try this too.

Honestly! It is not as hard as it looks. Hardest part is starting--these are the first shoes I ever have done! You can do it too!

My bread & butter job is in tourism (lots of people) and my second job is a long arming quilting business (lots of design)--I am lucky because I Love them both!
