You’ll need:
– a pair of basic cloth sneakers
– acrylic paints
– a couple of pencils with erasers

To get started, squeeze a little of each acrylic paint color onto a small dish. I really like Liquitex Basics for painting with kids. They’re the perfect thickness, and will last a long time.

Use a pencil eraser for each color to “stamp” the polka-dots onto the shoes.

Let the shoes dry before wearing.

Toss the shoes in the dryer for about 20 minutes and the color will be permanent. That is the beauty of acrylic paints!
