DIY: Galaxy Shoes

Hey guys, I'm so excited because this is my first post about DIY-ing shoes! Hope you enjoy reading. :)

So I had these old plain dark blue shoes I got from my birthday last year, it was fading and looked so bad, and because I was too lazy to clean them, I just thought of a bright idea to revamp these....*TING!*.... Galaxy shoes!

Tools and Materials:
*A pair of dark-colored shoes
*Fabric/Acrylic Paint: Blue, Violet and White works best
*Painting brush
*An old toothbrush
*Lots of newspapers (It gets messy!)

Step 1: Cover the soles of your shoes with tape, in case you want a cleaner look.

Step 2: Using your blue paint and sponge, dab it onto your shoes, and create a cloudy effect.

Step 3: Then add your violet paint and mix it with the blue paint you just added from before.

This is how it looks like, pretty bad, huh? But don't worry, it's not done yet ;D

Step 4: Now add a portion of white paint, and mix it with the blue and violet paint from your shoes, to create that "Milky Way" effect.

Step 5: Using your toothbrush, dab it onto the white paint and then using your finger, scratch/scrape the toothbrush with the white paint near the shoes. This will make the "stars."

Step 6: Now using your paint brush, paint some big stars, shooting or falling stars, this will make the shoes emphasize more.

And there you have it, your own handmade galaxy shoes!

Awesome, right?
