Aztec is the new chevron of fabric… Have you noticed it everywhere? I am loving it.
Today’s tutorial is a great summer time craft since it is fun for kids and adults… !
All you need for this project is a few Painters and some shoes. Elmer’s Painters come with different tips. See at the bottom of the marker? It is very important that you have at least a black fine tip painter. It works wonders for outlining. (They sent me these for free, but obviously I like them and think they work great!)
I started with a few doodles to practice using my painters. Then I started drawing my lines… The painters are a lot like nail polish. To get the most vivid color, let the lines dry and then go over in the same color. Obviously, the more you go over them, the darker they get.
I stared outlining with the fine tip black.
I decided I did not want both shoes identical. I would let one shoe dry, while I started doodling on the other. See the left shoe, I tried circles. I didn’t love them and decided to make it a straight line.
I went over and over the color. I’m telling you the black fine tip is your friend. I almost thought I was done, but decided to do a little more outlining.
And I’m happy I did. Here is the finished product…
Here’s a close up…
