I wanted to match Jiji’s eyes.
Took a few hours to do something fun. (ﾉ;ヮ;)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
I’ve been pining for gold shoes, but nice shoes are harder to find than fairies. When you avoid platforms, peep toes, bad colors, and square boxes, there probably won’t be shoes left. So I bought shoes that had the right shape, and worked some magic. Now I have some gorgeous gold shoes in the perfect golden hue!
I use Angelus Leather Paints, they’re the best hands down for this (cosplayers, take notice!). You can purchase it from Angelus Direct, Dharma Trading Company, or Turtle Feathers. I have purchased from all three sites and they ship very quickly. I keep a bit of stock at home because I’m a supply pack rat.
Just clean your shoes with specialty stripper or acetone/ethanol alcohol, and carefully mask off any parts you don’t want to paint. I used a disposable sponge brush and paint brush to apply very thin layers of paint, and when it dried I polished it with Angelus matte finisher to seal the paint. It will not crack or flake at all!
