Patterned Converse

Patterned Converse


We love converse shoes. They’re comfortable, look great and they are great for stenciling!  We gave our pair a special twist by stenciling one of our new patterns on it.

For this how-to you’ll need: A pair of Converse shoes, FolkArt Multi-Surface paint, stencil brushes, Stencil1 Star Pattern stencil.

Step 1: Use a low-tack adhesive to secure the stencil to the shoe.

Step 2: We went for a very subtle look, so we used a dark grey to stencil the pattern. Use the brush in an up-and-down motion to stencil. Remember stenciling is a dry brush technique so use very little paint and apply multiple layers.


Step 3: Lift the stencil off carefully. Once it’s completely dry stencil the other side and then repeat the same steps to stencil the other shoe.
