Painting shoes??
  • Hey,
    fisrt I'd just like to say that I LOVE your textile paints! I use them to paint vans shoes, and they're perfect!

    I had one question though, how do I heat set them or make them permanent somehow? For a tshirt I know to iron the back side, but how to you suggest doing it with shoes? I sell them, and the last thing I'd want is for someone to get a pair and then find out that the paint comes off in the rain! Thanks for any help you can give about this!

    ps, my website is www.chabolla.com if you'd like to look at the vans image

    thank you!!

    Wow girl!! Great stuff!

    Now here's a secret. The paints will 'cure' on their own after about a week. If you want make extra sure, you can heat set (carefully) with a hair dryer.
