With a flat brush, paint the entire shoe with Stylin Yellow, being careful not to apply paint to the soles. If paint gets on the lace eyelets, gently wipe them clean with a damp paper towel. Allow the shoes to dry completely before moving on to Step 2.
With a round brush, use Stylin Red to paint small cherries in various spots all over the shoe. Locate some close together in pairs, some as individuals. Allow to dry.
With a liner brush, use Stylin Green to paint stems on the cherries. On the pairs, connect the stems at the top to form an upside down ‘v.’
Add leaves to the stems and highlights to the cherries for more detail.
