    <div align="center">Ok all , we dont have a alternate art area so im posting it here >=) These are hand painted chucks, i got inspiration from surfin online and my niece asked me to try a pair for her son since they wanted 250 bucks for a pair of size 1 kids shoes lol, I used colors with bg colors in metallic, i forgot to shoot the finished venom but the bg is mettalic red, I used Folk Arts Fabric acrylic canvas paints with a gloss sealer and stiff acrylic brushes, used a blow dryer to speed up drying, I started with a white base coat then light colors to dark, venoms webbing on uniform is in silver.And all outlining was done with a good ole sharpie >=), the hat was a old fox racing hat with a raised fox logo which was painted into web, same materials used on hat as shoes, remember if your gonna try this that to always use a white base first and acrylic canvas fabric paints and nice stiff brushes, sharpies work wonderfully and can be gloss coated, if you are goin to paint on leather you must use dyes not paint for it to work and most leather sneakers have a coating of gloss wax so the must be stripped with acetoner...lol pictures were taken with my blackberry so sorry bout quality lol.

    btw, is it advisable to use spray paint or one of those paint sprayer things to spread out the paint more evenly?.
