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:

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:
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.
