Painted shoes are a great idea for bridal parties. Everyone can have shoes they are comfortable in and they can all be painted the same colour. Painted and personalised shoes for the bride are a special gift and would be a treasured keepsake.

Kids love personalised shoes so why not paint a design just for them. Paint their name in the design and they won't get left behind! Paint a different design on each shoe to help them remember which one goes on which foot. You'll never have to disappoint if the shop doesn't have the colour or design they wanted because you can paint them yourself.

Wondering what type of shoes to bring with you to paint?

Well firstly I'll have plenty of pre-loved footwear there for you to test out your designs on if you are not ready to put paintbrush to your own shoes.

If you would like to bring some shoes then here are the types you can paint:

- Canvas
- Suede
- Leather
- Synthetic Leather (Vinyl)
- Fabric/Satin/Faux Suede
- Whatever style you like.. Sandals, Slippers, Heels, Flats, Casuals, Footy Boots, Wedges, Boots, Uggs, Ballet Slippers.

They don't have to be new either - this is an excellent opportunity to jazz up a pair of your old shoes.

Here is a list of what to avoid:

- Patent leather
- Rubber (ie Crocs & Thongs)
- Dirty or Oily Stains - give them a clean first or choose a different pair
- Too old (if the surface has started cracking)
- Your favourites - choose something less valuable for your first try

A bit about your instructor:

Hi I'm Anna and I'm in my third year of business as a shoe painter. My business is Brave Strides and I design and custom paint shoes of all types. I love to experiment with techniques and products to provide completely unique designs to my clients. I also love to share my passion and expertise for painting shoes. I have done all the testing and research so that you will be able to get the information and materials in one place.
