    Do you like to color?? I trace the pattern on with graphite paper, onto the fabric. I use So Soft Paints and they are wonderful for quilting on them, thru them, or whatever. I am not a "draw-er"... at all. I look at the color photo and mix paints until I get the colors I need. If you enjoy coloring, that's really all this is, using acrylic paints. If you want a painting of your horse for a quilt center, you just want it not to be real large or the detail becomes to important. Here's the center of my iris quilt, when I started it
    I am a great artist...in my head lol. Even from a picture there is no way I could draw, much less correctly color. Reason I tossed out the question (mostly in jest) is because I have an idea for a wallhanging using my QB username, and I thought it would be cool to include Dusty someway, even if just a photo of him transferred onto fabric. Then I saw your painted shoe and away went my imagination...with no skill to back it up...again LOL.

    Lovely. I love to paint too. I have done a few embellishments on some of my quilts. I use shiva oil sticks and inks.

    Well, good morning all. Here is the link to the place I buy the paints at a really good discount.
    http://www.hofcraft.com/decoart-so-s...ric-paint.html You can buy 15 or 20 of them without the shipping price going up. When they send the paints, they put in a nice note about using the paints. These mix very well, so I don't buy a trillion colors. When I did the iris quilt I only had 8 bottles...mostly different values of purples/blues, a yellow and 2 different greens. I just got the new shipment in with more variety so I could do these shoes. I can't wait to use the metallic gold on these shoes.

    Thanks Jeannie, now I have to try this. I love painting and be a avid quilter but didn't like the feel of acrylic paints on the material. Problem solved now.

    Go to Oregon patchwork, there is a cool sandal high-heel with different views of the sandal.

    what a great idea!!!!!!! Great paint job!!!!! I have a pattern for flowers that use crayons instead of paints. LQS recommended PRANG brand crayons instead of Crayola. Patterns says to iron fabric to remove wax by putting paper towel on top of coloring, pressing for 30-60 sec, repeat with new towel until no wax comes off. It also suggests tracing design on to fabric using a gelly roll pen that is permanet so you will ot have to outline after it is colored. Same method could be use for these shoes!!!!!!!!! Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!

    oops, it isn't just like my daughter's shoe, but the color reminded me of it.

    Yours is exactly the kind of shoe my daughter wears and loves

    looking forward to seeing your finished quilt and the rest of the shoes.
