Clearing out my flat in preparation for our move, I came across these shoes, which were part of my work on my Art & Design foundation course (twelve years ago, when I was 18!). They've been on display in most of the places I've lived since then, but they'd been in a crate for two years and our new place doesn't have much shelf space, so I thought it was time to snap them for posterity and bin them.
If you'd like to try making these at home, kids... get some old shoes (preferably suede or fabric, although leather does work) and paint them in layers of acrylic paint. The 'tea and biscuits' pattern was applied in acrylic paint, the monochrome pattern was added with a black bullet point permanent marker over a white acrylic background. The monochrome shoes were coloured inside with black marker. Varnished the finished articles with PVA glue. Once dry, you can't walk in them as the paint cracks, but they look do nice on a shelf.
