Default Re: Painting Canvas Shoes

I have a canvas tote that is handpainted. i painted and posted a pic last week of shoes I made. i used acrylic and the bag feels very different from the shoes. I will wash the shoes tonight and see how they stand up....I sprayed them with waterproof you get in the shoe section at walmart.

My brother in law suggested that I use fabric paint (he used to paint lots) b.c it would soak into the fabric and most likely last longer. I think the girl who painted my bag mixed a medium into the paint to make it for fabrics.
