Ever have trouble finding boots in the right color? Tried spray-painting them and ended up with a dry, cracked mess?
A fantastic friend recently advised me to paint leather boots (and any other leather goods) with floral paint. This is a spray paint that is light and flexible enough to use on live flowers. Above are the Poison Ivy boots I painted for a friend, which turned out fantastic.
One thing though: Wear them while you paint them, and maybe stretch your foot around in between coats. I didn’t think of this, and while the paint did not crack at all, it started to split where the boots were stretched from walking. Next time I paint some boots, I’ll let you know if I was able to fix this problem.
The paint I used is called Design Master, and you can find it at Michael’s or Joann Fabrics. In the stores near me, Michael’s had a better selection of colors and a slightly better price, but that may not be true everywhere. This color is “Holiday Green.”
Great alternative to spray rubber and plasti-dip or bootcovers, and cheaper than leather paint! Reminder that Michaels and JoAnns both frequently offer 50% off coupons and will match competitor coupons and offers!!
yooo i used this stuff on my ball gown shoes a while back and it worked perfectly. also if you rub pure acetone on your shoe before you paint it, it will rub off the leather/pleather etc sealant and absorb the paint even better, lessening your chances of the paint splitting in some areas. also spraying it with water proof sealant for shoes will help out a great deal as well!
this stuff is AMAZING it only took one coat to evenly color my boots in the perfect color!! It’s a little expensive for paint but it’s way cheaper than finding shoes or other leatherwear in the “perfect” color, and this way you can choose the preferred style and color as needed!!
Almost every fucking piece of official art looks like something you’d see for a 90’s Boy Band.
Sometimes taken a little to literally……….
Hell I’ve seeing some newer shows still doing the same thing. *looks at Free!*
plot twist: senpai gets noticed
This whole show is senpai trying to get noticed.
The entire show is a plot twist. Instead of the unpopular girl trying to get noticed by the popular boys, it’s the popular boys trying to get noticed by the unpopular girl.
can i just take a moment to say how much i love ouran host club
non-gender-conforming girl with a genderqueer dadmom makes friends with popular boys by not being fooled by their bullshit
And the unpopular girl is popular with the popular girls as one of the popular boys. Plus Tamaki’s cute as hell.
It’s even a ‘twist’ in how the “hidden gender” story tends to work- Hana Kimi, Power!, ect stories like that are usually funny because GASP the girl doesn’t know how to be a boy. Boys around her discover her secret and stumble around in the background trying to help her keep it. Humor usually comes from these near discoveries and wild attempts to keep the secret.
But Ouran is funny because the main character is so unaware of gender and cares so little about it that changing her outfit changes how her gender is perceived. Humor comes from the side characters being so wacky and trying to get Haruhi to present male or female gendered traits depending on their moods/the situations (Sometimes to reinforce in other students’ minds that she’s a boy, and sometimes because they want her to be girlish and pretty and moe moe love). Haruhi sits in this gender neutral spot while the characters around her try to tug her into gender presentations, and Haruhi doesn’t give two fucks.
Hey tumblr! Did you know that if you suffer from depression / anxiety or any other mental illness, you can register your dog as an emotional support animal, making it illegal for a landlord to refuse to rent to you? That’s right. No breed restrictions, no weight restrictions, no matter what, they are not allowed to refuse.
This includes cats, rabbits, birds, guinea pigs, etc.!! Go here to register your pet as an ESA :~)
