DIY Color Blocking Wedges

Hi everybody,
I thought sharing a DIY project for this weekend would be fun. Here I took some slightly bland wedges and made them a bit more fun and lively for the summer (I painted them last year). I got inspired by the Giuseppe Zanotti color-block sandals.
What you need:
  • Shoes
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Acrylic Paint Sealer. You can use "Krylon 1305 UV-Resistant"
  • Brushes
  • Wax Paper
  • Water (for rinsing brushes)
  • Masking Tape (to guard borders and cover every part that you don't want to paint or spray)

Unfortunately I didn't take pictures of the process but just the before and after (If you want, you can follow these instructions where I painted my Pumps - it's the same process). Really you can paint them any way you want, but this is how I did it. I first started with the pink, then with the yellow and the last color I added was the baby blue. .

Hola a todos,
Pense que compartir este manualidad "Hazlo Tu Misma" para este fin de semana seria divertido. Tome estas sandalias de color no muy atractivas y las cambie completamente (las pinte el año pasado). Me inspire en las sandalias de color block de Giuseppe Zanotti.

Lo Que Nesecitas:
  • Sandalias
  • Pintura acrilica
  • Sellador de pintura acrilica. ejemplo: "Krylon 1305 UV-Resistant"
  • Pinceles
  • Papel de Cera de cocina
  • Agua (para lavar los pinceles)
  • Cinta adhesiva. (para cubrir cada parte que no quieras pintar)
Desafortunadamente no tome fotos de los pasos solo del antes y despues (si quieres puedes seguir estos pasos de cuando pinte mi zapatos negros en neon - es el mismo proceso).  O los puedes pintar en la manera que te sientas comoda. Yo por ejemplo hice asi: Primero empese con el color rosado, despues con el amarillo y por ultimo agregue el color celeste.

Don't they look better! Why don't you try it as well? Have fun ^^ !

No se ven mas lindas! Te animas a hacer algo similar? Que te diviertas ^_^
