09:36 pm - Advice?

This place looks a bit dead but I don't particularly care.
I've never really painted boots before, the furthest I've ever got is writing on them with toxic markers.
I have a pair of old leather boots that need fucking up, I want to make them green. Would high-permanence spray-paint work, or is there something better?

It's been a long time for this community it appears, but I figured I would bring it back from the dead for just a little while.

I thought I'd depart a bit from my usual style of painting boots, and this is what happened:

10:50 pm - Question & inspiration
Has anyone ever tried to decoupage a pair of boots?
I have a pair of cheap boots (red fake/synthetic leather) I want to decorate. I have a few ideas of how to apply the paper like priming it first & using sand paper to roughen up the surface, but I'm not sure how durable the paper would be & how to seal it afterwards. I don't know if water proofing is possible, I am more concerned with the paper ripping & coming off around the ankle where the fabric moves as you walk.

The shoes would be covered all over, not just a few pictures stuck on. Any ideas?

For those of you interested I have found a few examples:

Hello! My first post here :)

I've had these boots for about eight years and in that time they've been painted in a few different ways. I kept getting bored, scrubbing the paint off, and doing it differently. Now they just have silver and gold stars down the back:

star boots

I think they're in need of a re-paint, though!

I used to have a pair of black boots which i painted sort of organic plant-like patterns round the bottom of in different metallic paints. They were very pretty. Sadly they have long gone to boot heaven.

To replace my old (identical, but not identically painted, even if similar) bootsCollapse ) Hehe.

I had also glued some small black spiders to the side not shown... but their legs broke off and I am pondering just chipping them off and painting on some spiders instead.
