If you all remember my custom hand painted shoe post from yesterday, I talked about how I sketched out the design for my shoes to have custom painted.
Well, after talking to the bride who already had hers done by a friend, she told me he used sharpie paint markers and several layers of protective spray to waterproof them. She mentioned that if she had any artistic bone in her body, she would have done them herself.
So.. my question is, you've seen a rough example of my artwork.. should I attempt to paint my shoes myself or should I hire the lady on etsy and pay her $65 to paint them for me? She's never painted shoes before either and she's wanting me to send payment in the mail, not paypal, which makes me feel a little uneasy.
What do you think.. DIY or no?
