Commes des Garcons DIY


This DIY is probably the most frequent one Ive seen in the blogging world. I decided to do my version of it:


1. Start with plain black shoes as well as gold and silver spray paint. Remove the laces.
2. Spray the shoes with gold spray paint and subsequently, with a light coat of silver to achieve a champagne color.
3. Wait 48 hours and then paint on the toes with a paint brush and fabric paint.
4. Lastly, paint on the nail polish. Here, I used oil paint and a medium to thin it out. Then re-lace the shoes and voila!

  4. THANK-YOU!!

    I've been searching the internet for an answer on whether or not I can paint some boxing gloves gold for my daughter's post-childhood cancer battle photos. It seems your shoes & the gloves are made of a similar material so glad to know good ole Rust-Olium will work on them. *thumbs up* Cute shoes, btw ;)

  5. FINALLY! I've been looking all over the internet for a project regarding using regular old spray paint on fabric. I'm spray painting some boxing gloves gold for my daughter's post-cancer battle. Seems your shoes & her gloves are of a similar fabric, so glad to know good ole Rust-Olium will work. *thumbs up* Love the shoes too, btw.
