• White sneakers (Got mine from Cotton On at P799)
• Acrylic paint / pens (National Bookstore)
• Paint brushes
• Colored Pencils
• Masking Tape
Before starting, remove the laces and cover eveything you don’t want to mess up with masking tape.
P 25c coin is the perfect size!
Make sure to stick it really, really well!
Always have your image guide near you.
Lightly draw the star with colored pencils.
Fill in the details carefully.
Add some highlights using white paint.
Peel off masking tape once semi-dry.
Use your masking tape to create a template for the bow. Make sure your paint is completely dry before this step!
Start filling it in – i suggest you use a vibrant red~!
Don’t take too long as acrylic pant tends to dry up very quickly.
Peel off tape when done.
You can go over the edges again to make sure it’s crisp and not ragged.
Take your blue paint pen / paint and star drawing the sailor collars on each side.
Painted over the eyelets to create a more polished look.
If you’re going to buy just one paint pen, get the white one. It’ll save you a lot more time and effort on this step!
Time to add the lower bow ends!
Let it dry completely (I suggest leave it overnight). Also, spray it with some finishing coat if you have some.
Remove all of your masking tape, aaaand… it’s done! Easy, right? 🙂
Try the other soldiers and show me, ok?!
Hope you had fun with this DIY!
