DIY NEON SHOES
All I see online is neon, neon, neon, but it is almost impossible to find a cute pair of neon yellow shoes at an affordable price. I took a pair of shoes that I have never worn but have kept for over a year and painted them neon yellow. It was relatively easy, I used regular spray paint and after wearing them they cracked a little, but it is not very noticeable. Leather paint would be best, but I can't find that anywhere.
a pair of shoes that you don't mind ruining
white spray primer or paint ( it makes the neon look brighter)
neon spray paint of your choice
clear paint to seal the color.
First, use alcohol to rub off the shinny finish on your shoes.
Use tape to mask everything you don't want painted.
I use a cardboard box sideways and newspaper, so the paint doesn't fly everywhere.
Spray the shoes with thin coats, so the paint doesn't drip. I used about 4 coats of primer, very light.
Let it dry and when dry , spray thin light coats of the neon color until evenly coated. Remove the tape before the paint is dry, to avoid peeling of the paint. Finish with a clear coat and let dry for 24 hours
