Today is the day I make all the finishing touches to the sho. I handpainted a darker blue to parts of the reptile imprint and used a mixture of corn syrup and alcohol to brush on the shoe, this created a shiny blend on the shoe which looked great. Keep in mind, if you didn’t want a colorbleed on your shoe, I would be careful about using this technique, just carefully blot on.

I added a red under sole and a LV logo with a black food color pen and also added a strip with a button.
