Who is it for?

Anyone interested in giving a new life to their old shoes and to all those who want exclusivity and to stand out from the rest.

What you need

You don't need any previous knowledge, but if you already have experience in working with paints and colors, it will be very useful when mixing, applying, and coming up with ideas.

You will need a basic cleaning kit (shoe cleaning fluid or neutral baby shampoo and a soft brush) that you can get from some drug stores or from the shoe care area in large supermarkets.

Ideally you should have Angelus acrylic paints, or textile acrylic paints that you can find in any art store in your city. Finally, you should have brushes, ideally beveled, some additives, depending on the fabric or type of leather, cotton pads, cotton sticks, nail polish remover, and alcohol, in addition to other materials described during the course.
