YES! I’ll paint some sometime in the very near future!
Winter Soldier Commission
30.5cm x 45.7cm gouache and acrylic on watercolour paper
The next person who commissions a Winter Soldier painting will be asked to paint the metal arm themselves. Same goes for the billion stupid straps and belts (I’m just kidding - it was fun to try and figure out, it just took a long time is all!)
I’m really digging this colour palette challenge thing that everybody is doing. If I could do digital art I’d be all over that, instead I’m sitting here in the stone age like, shuffling papers around, knocking paintbrushes over
here’s a picture of me feeding avocado to my cat. He likes fruit and veggies and won’t eat most meats. Sometimes he’ll lick tuna juices and every now and again he MIGHT eat a piece of chicken but mostly he likes strawberries and avocado. He also really loves perogies and cheese buns and especially likes cantaloupe. He’s a funny little guy.
Anyway there’s no point to this post

if only you guys knew what I had to go through to post this
NEVER SAY I DIDN’T LOVE YOU
on an extremely related note, I’ll have really sporadic internet for a little while here so if you absolutely need to contact me then email is the way to go
ask and you shall receive - a tutorial on how I made these decoupage superhero shoes
My friend is going to a comic expo next month and asked if I could make her Captain America themed shoes, so here we go:
1. acrylic paint
2. mod podge
3. cut out pictures
4. shoes (obviously)
5. two paintbrushes - one for glue and one for paint
7. snacks (very important)
cut out shapes that fit on your shoe. You’ll have to fiddle around with it and the paper will get wrinkly and you might get frustrated and accidentally glue a piece to your hair (or maybe that was just me), but make sure the pieces all fit on the shoe
make sure you really coat the pieces in a ton of glue and stick them down where you want ‘em
seriously, lots of glue. Use your paintbrush to paint glue OVER TOP of the pieces you already glued down. if your fingernails aren’t covered in glue for 3 days then you’re doing it wrong
after you’ve finished gluing down everything where you want it, give the entire shoe another good coating and eat your snack while you wait for it to dry
this is where your other paintbrush comes in. to really finish off the shoes and give them a cleaner look, paint a border around the edges.
however if you’re patient and not a walking tornado of mess like me then you can cut and glue the pieces to leave a clean edge
because Mod Podge is water based it will run if it gets wet. I used Mod Podge waterproof acrylic sealer in matte to seal the shoes. Do this step outside because it’s super toxic!
LAST LAST STEP:
model your killer heels (or the killer heels you made for your friend that you tried on and went grocery shopping in so you hope she doesn’t see this post)
so basically I saw these really cool superhero decoupage shoes and wondered if I could make my own. It was pretty easy actually! I just took an old pair of heels, some comics, and mod podge
(unfortunately my poor friend had to watch me document the whole thing through snapchat) I’m going to be making another pair for her soon so I’ll upload a tutorial if people are interested
