How to Paint Pink Flamingo Shoes

  1. Preparation of Shoes: Masking tape off all rubber parts of the shoe including the leather logo. Place cardboard inside the shoe and stabilize it with a towel, using binder clips to hold it in place.

  2. Draw the shoe in its actual size onto paper and then draw the design to fit the shoe.

  3. Fill a small spray bottle halfway with water; add Turquoise, Blue, and White. Shake well and spray the background. Using a toothbrush, spritz a little Fuchsia into the background.

  4. Draw/transfer the design onto the shoe.

  5. Leaves: Mix Green, Blue, and very little Black to make a dark green; use Yellow and White for highlights.

  6. Water: Mix Aqua, Turquoise, and Blue. White for highlights.

  7. Ground Around Water: stipple Chestnut with Black with Beige highlights.

  8. Tree: Chestnut and Black with Beige highlights.

  9. Flamingo: Fuchsia with White highlights.

  10. Flamingo Beak: White and Black.

  11. Use a black fine point permanent marker to outline design and put in feathers and leaf details.
