Wooden beads and laces

DIY Ombre Shoes and Laces

Here's what you'll need:

a pair of all white sneakers

a couple wooden beads

blue painters tape

Start my removing the shoe laces and tape off the rubber sole around the bottom of the shoe, just leaving the fabric showing.


Starting at the toe of the shoe, begin to spray light, even coats of the Tint IT on the shoe. Add more layers of paint to the tip of the toe to give the ombre effect. Allow the shoe to dry completely. You will be surprised at how fast this product dries.
Paint the ends of the laces with Tint IT or I used Lavender Colortool Spray Paint to add another shade of purple. Also paint the wooden beads. To get this nice dark green color, I painted this bead with 3 coats of paint. Each layer dries in no time at all, so there isn't much waiting time.

When the laces and beads are dry, lace them onto the shoe and you are done. I know my daughter is going to want a pair as well.

I love the versatility of Design Master paints, they adhere to practically any surface, even sneakers. The Tint IT product is actually a sheer fast drying dye. It goes on in extra light coats and looks amazing on glass and even mercury glass. If you have ever tried dip dying fabric before, you'll know how much easier and less messy this is.

Design Master paints can paint the most delicate of surfaces, such as silk and fresh flowers, fabric, ribbon, tulle, lace, paper, foam board and Stryrofoam TO the sturdy hard surfaces such as wood, metal, masonry, terra cotta, ceramics and plaster.
