Step 1: Choose your colour palette

  • Make sure your leather trainers are clean and dry. You can clean them with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or dust.

  • Select the paint colours you want to use. Try to use colours that blend well with the leather and create a visual contrast.

Step 2: Sketch your designs

  • Using a pencil, lightly sketch the floral motifs you want to paint on your trainers. This can include flowers, leaves or any other design you choose.

  • Use a fine brush to start painting the outlines of your floral designs. Choose a base colour for each element of your design.

  • Use a finer brush to add details to your designs, such as delicate lines, shades and accents.

Feel free to experiment with different shades for more depth.

Step 3: Fix the paint

  • Once you've finished painting, leave your trainers to dry completely.

  • Add any extra details you need and make sure the paint is completely dry before wearing your personalized trainers.

  • If you wish, you can apply a leather sealer or protective spray to ensure the longevity of your creation.

Step 4: Wear your unique trainers!

  • Once you've completed all the steps, slip on your personalized trainers and be proud of your unique creation!

Don't forget to adjust these steps to suit your personal preferences and artistic style!
