Painted clogs for me!

I had a pair of plain black leather Dansko clogs and I finally had the chance to paint them...

I used latex paints and a couple of coats of  clear coat acrylic spray to seal the paints.
I taped off the bottom before spraying with the clear coat and I stuffed the shoe with newspaper to protect the interior. 

I used a black Sharpie Paint pen for the black swirls

This is my pallet, an old catering tray was perfect for mixing lots of different colors.

I painted one shoe, then the other, I wasn't careful enough to make them exactly
the same...I'll be more careful with the next pair :)

 I'm looking around for more leather shoes to paint, it was fun and I like having something unique.
