Painting is such a great way to express yourself. When you'd like others to see a different side of you, you can paint on a canvas or a coloring page as a means of self-expression. Yet, you don't have to limit yourself to only painting on a canvas sheet. You can paint on other surfaces, such as a pair of shoes or a pouch!

If you have a canvas purse or a pair of canvas shoes lying around in your closet, you should check out this Watercolor Effect Canvas Shoes & Pouch tutorial. Instead of wearing plain shoes and accessories, show off your personality by painting a watercolor effect onto your wardrobe!

Materials List

  • DecoArt® Stylin™ in Blue, Fuchsia, Beige, Yellow, Brown, and White
  • Canvas Shoes
  • Canvas Clutch
  • Small Flat Brush
  • Round Brush 6

Instructions:

  1. Dip the brush in Beige paint and dab on a few small dots.

  2. Using the same brush, paint several loose ‘C’ shapes around the dots. 

  3. Dip the brush in water and paint over the 'C' shapes. This will make the paint spread and give it a watercolor effect. 

  4. Dip the round brush in Fuchsia and lightly tap the brush onto the wet flower.

  5. Repeat this process with as many flowers as you wish. (Try varying colors for more depth.) Allow paint to dry.

  6. Dip the brush in Blue paint and paint some leaves around the flower

  7. Once the flower is dry, paint several small dots in the middle of the flower.

    NOTE: If you wish to have the Blue in the flower “spread”, paint while the flowers are still wet.

Note:

Wetting the surface prior to applying paint will allow the paint to dilute and spread like watercolor
