I am so excited! My lovely friend and co-worker Laura made a custom request for a pair of painted Exploding TARDIS shoes, based on the fictional Van Gogh painting from Doctor Who(my FAVE British TV show EVER!)
I had never tried painting shoes like this before(surprising, I know) but I was more than happy to try it out! She supplied the high top Converse sneakers, so all I had to do was produce some painting magic.
And magic indeed! They turned out AMAZINGLY! It took me about 3 episodes of DW, plus 20-ish min of sketch and design work to figure out how I was going to arrange the explosion and the TARDIS fragments.
After sealing them with 3 coats of Scotch Guard, my mom and I got the great idea to do a photoshoot with the shoes and my handmade TARDIS dress!
It was a lot of fun and I think everything turned out smashingly.
I guess I see more painted shoes in my future… 😉
