As my son and I did this activity, he said "this is my favorite activity!" I had to laugh. He loved coloring shoes with Sharpie Markers and he adored the gradient process. We had a blast making mommy and son shoes. He even wanted to help color mine. This activity took no energy we just sat still and colored. It was awesome.
WHAT YOU NEED:
White Canvas Shoes
1 Color the canvas of the shoes with as many colors are you like. We ended up liking the areas I created swirls and other shapes as they bled together really pretty. You could make any design, flowers, stripes, swirls, whatever your want. Just be sure to make the ink thick.
2 After the entire shoe is covered in color, apply rubbing alcohol to spread the color. We used a medicine dropper (if you do be sure to throw it away after the project). Drip the rubbing alcohol all over the shoes saturating the canvas.
3 Let the shoes dry over night. If you want you can add more rubbing alcohol, it may create water droplet like effect if you don't soak the entire shoe.
4 When you're happy and they are dry, pop them on your feet and walk around in style.
