i have a doc martens problem
at one point i had seven pairs i think. i've since consigned some but i have at least four now. i basically hadn't worn these white ones since my freshman year of college so i decided to give them a makeover using angelus leather paint, inspired by a picture i found on tumblr.
starting to paint. i took this picture in a panic after realizing i hadn't done a 'before' shot.
after one coat of paint.
i think i did about five coats of the orange plus some touchups where it was needed. i freehanded the pumpkin faces. honestly the shoes turned out a bit more vividly orange than i would have really liked but there wasn't much to be done about that. the colour might fade a bit with wear, but i'm happy with them anyway.
all laced up!
