News / hand painted sneakers
The re release of the black/black AJ1s is a sneaker artist's dream canvas. Clean lines, clean leather, perfect to be painted! This client wanted me to take the direction with this project, and I had something in mind for these. Of course first comes shoe prep with rubber gloves, Acetone, cotton balls and tape. If you want to learn more about that check out my in depth blog post HERE. First I layered a few coats of different shades of green Jacquard paint. Then came a few layers of metallic gold and copper.
Next I hand cut each leaf of the masking tape and added some more coats of color.The next two pictures below are a screen grab from my Snapchat.
Tape comes off! Then a few coats of protection with the acrylic finisher and done!
Done and trying not to get attached>>>
